A giltwood and polychrome-decorated carved pine panel. Early 18th Century, originating from Venice. Entitled "The Doge of Venice".The panel depicts The Doge of Venice, wearing corno ducale and camauro, kneeling before a female figure, either Faith, or the female personification of Venice, the Lion of St Mark, carved with wings, halo and open book beneath his left paw, by her side, all within a border of tasselled swags. Provenance: From the Collection of Graham and Susan James and the sale of the contents of Luxford Farm, Crowborough, Sussex.
