Our Lady of the Sacred Heart by Antonio Ciseri is framed in an ornate gold frame. It measures 13x19".
Antonio Ciseri was born in Switzerland and trained in Florence under Niccola Benvenuti. His religious paintings are Raphaelesque in their compositional outlines and their polished surfaces, but are nearly photographic in effect. He fulfilled many important commissions from churches in Italy and Switzerland. Ciseri also painted a significant number of portraits.
