A rare pair of children


Artist: Jacob Spornberg

Both three-quarter length standing before a curtain background

painted on flat glass against paper, set in the original hammered brass frames

Whilst Spornberg's advertisements mention only his 'Etruscan profiles ' (that is, profiles painted in line on a red base colour against a black background) he is known to have occasionally painted profiles in black on flat glass as seen in this pair. This pair show all the characteristics of other known profiles painted on flat glass in black by Spornberg; namely the looped curtain, the full-length, rather than bust profile, the hammered brass frame and the detail scratched with needle for the curtain but solid black face
