Object information
Object category
painting
Support/medium
canvas, oil paint
Fine plain linen canvas. Warm grey ground. The paint layers are extremely thin in most areas, in some parts consisting only of the ground layer. The artist has scored details directly into the thin wet paint with the end of his brush or thin tool; the signature in the lower right corner has also been executed in this manner. The painting has been Beva-lined with a double lining of linen canvas; the original tacking margins are absent. There is a repaired ‘T’ tear on the horizon. Previous recorded treatment: 1878, frame re-gilded; 1946, cleaned and signature revealed; 1980, strip-lined, blanched varnish treated and revarnished, National Maritime Museum; 1998, relined, cleaned and restored, S. Plender; 1988 Technical report, L. Sheldon (Sophia Plender).
