Collage after 'Tobias and the Angel', probably France 18th Century

request note print

Large collage of colored paper and fabric as a diorama. In the foreground Tobias and the angel Raphael with a small dog can be seen returning home with the fish. In the middle ground, the two can be seen fishing the same big fish, while in the background the landscape of a coastal town can be seen. Tobias and Raphael are in an idealized garden landscape with obelisks, palm trees, lush vases and a wall with volutes and sculptures. Tobias was protected in the Old Testament in the Book of Tobit (Apoc.) by the archangel Raphael and a small dog on his journeys. The collage is framed like a diorama and has two cracks in the upper left and right corners. Very nice relief-like effect due to the different plasticity. Dimensions without frame: 36 x 45 cm
