    I have no clue where to start on this peice. Only clue I have is the signature in the back that I canít make out. Looks to be painted on wood. Anyone have an idea?

    I googled "Ferdinandus Medices" and this page came up... I guess it's a copy of this painting which is in Siena.

      ha...was trying to reply about the time you posted John...couldn't log in for so reason.

      This depicts the marriage between Ferdinando de'Medici Grand Duke of Tuscany[1549-1609]to Christine of Lorraine[1589Ė1609]. This article describes the paintings as done by second rate Medici court artists. Found a few black and white copies...old links that no longer work. Found a coloured copy on Getty images that states the artist is Salimbeni Ventura [1568-1613]. Unable to make out the writing on the back.

        Thank you both!! So what your saying is that this is just a worthless copy?
