ITALY, 19TH CENTURY
The rectangular panels depicting forts and figures with two men working by a river and a lady flanked by two gentlemen in a coastal landscape, incorporated in a foliate and bead-moulded gilt frame. Originally two frames now joined.

‘Pietra dura’ or ‘pietre dure’ is an inlay technique using cut and fitted, highly-polished colored stones to create images. The stones are sliced and cut in different shape sections. The stonework, after the work is assembled loosely, is glued stone-by-stone to a substrate. It is assembled precisely so that the contact between each section is practically invisible.
