  • Additional Information & Condition

    Additional Information & Condition

    The panels featuring the evangelists Matthew and Mark as well as Archangel Gabriel were originally part of the Retablo Mayor created for the parish church of Bocairente in the province of Valencia. It included a total of 26 panels and measured 9 x 5.50 meters. The commission from 6.7.1578 was actually to be executed by Vicente Juan Macip (c. 1500-1579), the father of Vicente Joanes; However, he died shortly after the start of the work. The Retablo is the first documented large commissioned work by Vicente Joanes. It was finished in 1583.

    The paintings are in good condition, showing material-related cracks in the wood and fine craquelure. The backsides have been varnished later. The inspection under UV light reveals old and recent strokes of retouching in all three paintings. The varnish has been renewed. The restored frames differ slightly in size and show wear marks consistent with age. Two of the frames with major material losses and coats of paint.

    Vicente Joanes (c.1555 - after 1621)
    Vicente Joanes was born in Fuente la Higuera and moved to Boicarente in 1578 to work in the succession of his father at the altar of the parish church. In addition to this work, he also completed works by his father in the Cathedral of Valencia. Vicente Joanes continued the style of his father until the 17th century, ignoring the new naturalistic currents. (cko)
