This oil on canvas version of Mater Dolorosa, a famous painting by Guido Reni, was made in New York City by the naive artist A. Ludovico. The age appears to be 50-75 years old. The painting is 16" x 20" The frame is 27" x 22" When we acquired this piece, the canvas was dark with old varnish and glued to a piece of flexible and deteriorating "shirt-board" type cardboard. In removing it from the cardboard, we discovered that there was a copious amount of writing on the back of the canvas! This included a paragraph by the artist about the process of making the painting, (in blue ink) and a large attribution to Guido Reni along with the title Mater Dolorosa! What an exciting find this was! We decided to mount the canvas onto a piece of plexiglas to preserve the writing. (See the photos). The painting was cleaned, coated with a non-yellowing varnish and then installed into a late 1800's ornate frame. All work was performed in our studio.
