Object information
Object category
canvas, oil paint
Unlined medium plain-weave linen canvas, still on the original pine stretcher. The paint surface has a predominantly horizontal craquelure all over, which is slightly raised, especially in the dark areas. There is some cupping, particularly over the stretcher bars. There is a small retouching below the main signature covering either two vertical scratches or the number eleven. This painting, in an excellent state of preservation, is unlined and retains its original stretcher. Previous recorded treatment: 1936, frame and stretcher treated with paraffin; 1953, conserved, Dr Hell (Sophia Plender).
