Object information
Object category
panel (oak), oil paint
Two-member oak panel, joined horizontally. The panel has a wooden cradle on the reverse. The panel has been reduced a little on the right and probably left edges. There is some abrasion of the paint surface, particularly in the centre of the panel at the join. Some dark paint underdrawing is now visible in the trees and clouds due to an increase in transparency of the paint layers. There is some localised blanching in the left foreground, building and middle distance. The foliage has faded which probably indicates the loss or discolouration of a glaze containing a fugitive yellow pigment. Previous recorded treatment: 1866, ‘revived’, varnished and frame re-gilded; 1952-3, cleaned and retouched, Dr Hell; 1997, cradle, bars thinned and replaced T. Reeve; cleaned and restored, S. Plender (Sophia Plender).
