An Allegory of Youth and Old Age, Circle of Andrea Meldolla, lo Schiavone (1522-1563).

Oil on canvas, in a carved and gilded frame, 24cm by 32cm.

The artist, usually known simply as Andrea Schiavone, was born in a part of modern day Croatia, which was then ruled by Venice.

It is thought that he trained in Venice, where he painted frescoes and panel paintings, and taught himself etching, at which he became both innovative and highly skilled.
