Joseph Rodefer DeCamp (American, 1858-1923) painting after Titian of Virgin and Child with Saints, oil on canvas, dated 1881, 37" x 52" (49.5" x 64" frame size). This painting is similar to two paintings by Titian, 'The Virgin and Child with Infant Saint John and a Female Saint or Donor ("The Aldobrandini Madonna")' in the collection of the National Gallery, London and 'The Madonna and Child with a Female Saint and the Infant Saint John the Baptist' in the collection of the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth, TX. The DeCamp version incorporates elements from both examples by Titian, yet DeCamp has added his own variations, including the positioning of Saint John and the lamb. Condition: This painting has been relined and professionally restored and is in excellent condition. It is offered in an ornate antique giltwood frame. It is signed and dated in the lower left 'DeCamp 1881 after Titian.' Joseph DeCamp is best known as a teacher and a painter of portraits and figures, though he also painted some landscapes. He worked mainly in Boston and was a founding member of "The Ten American Painters." He was a great friend of Frank Duveneck and traveled with him to Europe where he met noted artists of the day and studied in Munich, Florence and Venice. He returned to Boston in about 1880 and shortly thereafter made this painting after Titian, whose works he would undoubtedly have studied while in Europe.
