JUSTUS SUSTERMANS (Antwerp, 1597 - Florence, 1681)

Portrait of Carlo of Lorraine fourth Duke of Guise
Oil on canvas, cm. 66x51. Framed.
Before the modern re-lining the canvas bore an ancient brush inscription on the back: "CARLO DI LORENA / DUCA DI GHISA". We have photographic evidence of the inscription applied on a panel fixed to the frame.The painting is closely similar to the other portrait of Charles of Lorraine (1571 - 1640) executed by Justus Sustermans, today at the Galleria Palatina in Florence. Like the latter, our painting can be surely date from the 1632 to 1637. Before the modern re-lining the canvas bore an ancient brush inscription on the back: "CARLO DI LORENA / DUCA DI GHISA". We have photographic evidence of the inscription applied on a panel fixed to the frame.
