After Guercino: 'A Bearded Man holding a Lamp'

Explore the paintings

Derived from the foreground Elder in Guercino's 'Susannah and the Elders' (Prado, Madrid), painted in 1617 for Cardinal Alessandro Ludovisi. It is an old copy, possibly of the 17th-century, and varies from the original only in showing the figure with a lamp in place of a staff. A number of other copies are known.

This work appears to be by an Italian artist (which suggests that it was probably painted before Guercino's original was sent to Spain in 1664).
