Annie and Zuccarelli.

IN THE POSTHUMOUS STUDIO SALE OF 1934, lots 159-160 are “Paintings by Guercino, Moroni and Zuccarelli,” with no further information given.

Just came across this mention in a Christie’s auction of 7 October 1999: two paintings, oil on canvas, unframed and unstretched, “Tobias and the Angel” and “Sybils praying before a brazier” by “a follower of Francesco Zuccarelli,” provenance “Anne L. Swynnerton A.R.A. Christie’s, London, 9th February 1934, lot 160.” They were sold as a pair for £1,035.

I can’t find images of Annie’s pictures, but this is another version of the same subject by Zuccarelli, sold by Sotheby’s in 2014.
