Manieri, Carlo - Prunkstilleben Fine Art Print

Brandywine General Store

SKU: 51 old masters

An archival premium Quality art Print of Prunkstilleben attributed to Carlo Manieri for sale by Brandywine General Store. This oil on canvas was probably completed sometime during the latter part of the 17th century. It is not certain that Manieri completed this art, but it is his style and technique. The German title roughly translates to Pomp Still Life. Not much information is available on this original work of art, however it appears to be a still life of the accoutrements used in war time. It would have been in a castle belonging to a Lord or Knight, as the person who owned all these items would have had to be wealthy. These could also have been spoils of a battle won. Some of the battle or war items laying on the floor include muskets, rifles, cannon balls, armor, flags, a chest, urns, drum and bugle, small revolvers, swords, knives, trunk and much more. A small dog is tied to a handle on a chest. There is a chair with rich red upholstery and also table with rich fabrics over them as tablecloths. On these tables are a bouquet of flowers and silver and gold pitchers and trays. All of these items would be worth a king's ransom today. Old Masters art print #51
