Italian school 18th century. "The Ambush"

Large oil on canvas representing travellers ambushed by mounted brigands. The attack takes place near a cavern, in the dark, contrasting with the skillfully bluish painted sky in the background. The landscape is full of horses and figures. The artist painted this work with virtuosity, the foreground being focused on the bitter fight between travellers and brigands and the background enhancing the painting with a bluish sky suggesting the suddenness of the ambush. Gilt stucco frame from the 19th century, to be restored.
