The Truth Behind Art Nomenclature

Because of the large auction houses (e.g. Sotheby's, etc.), the art world has largely accepted certain relatively new words to how artwork (and its authenticity) is described to potential bidders / buyers.  The use of the term "attributed to," "Circle of," "Follower of," "Manner of," and so forth are now used systematically by auction houses. 

Giovanni Francesco Romanelli

As a student of Pietro da Cortona, Giovanni Francesco Romanelli was given a prestigious artistic debut by assisting the decoration of Rome’s Palazzo Barberini. Like his teacher, Romanelli was inducted into a group of artists supported by Pope Urban VIII and his nephew, Cardinal Francesco Barberini, whose patronage provided Romanelli with commissions throughout the churches and palaces of Rome and the Vatican. Characterized as espousing a classicized, restrained version of his master’s Roman Baroque style, Romanelli’s work possessed the richly decorative values of his teacher—often embellished with gilded stucco work—and yet with a subdued sense of energy. Upon the exile of the Barberini family, Romanelli accompanied his patrons to Paris, where he became a prominent artistic influence, commissioned to decorate the National Library and the summer apartments of the Queen Mother, Anne of Austria, within the Louvre.

Does My Painting Need to be Cleaned? Why Might My Painting Need to be Cleaned? Taking care of your paintings is delicate and complex.  As paintings age, the appearance of the image changes not only because of accumulated dirt, but also because aging itself can alter the materials that make up the image.  Methods of removing dirt and other obscuring material requires great skill because any changes to the painting surface may bring about irreversible and damaging results, permanently affecting the aesthetic and monetary value of the work.
