Object information

painting
Support/medium
panel (oak), oil paint
The panel and paint layers are in good condition. The sky displayed drying cracks which have been subsequently retouched. The vermilion and lake in the rider’s coat are worn and slightly discoloured. Parts of the landscape and foliage have suffered from discolouration. This is thought to have been caused by light damage, as an area along the right-hand edge, which had been protected by the frame rebate, remains darker and more saturated. 1934 it was advised that the frame should be destroyed because of woodworm infestation; 2000, frame treated for insect infestation, 2003-4, cleaned and restored, N. Ryder (Sophia Plender).
