Object information
Object category
painting
Support/medium
panel (oak), oil paint
Two-member oak panel. The panel has a slightly uneven join and a light concave warp. On the reverse there is evidence of a previously removed cradle or battens. There is a secure crack at the bottom left of the panel, above the signature. Some pigment blanching has occurred in the bank behind the figures and in the leaves of the trees, and some of the foliage appears slightly abraded. There is some (retouched) damage to the sky, particularly in the top right. During conservation in 2010-2012 pinpoint holes were discovered on the edges of the panel, believed to have been made in the 'squaring up' process; a grid placed over the painting would aid a printmaker in the transfer of the composition to a plate for printing. These marks are likely to date from Thomas Major's time (see photo 1001457806). Previous recorded treatment: 1915, crack repaired, cleaned and varnished, Holder; 1952-5, Dr Hell; 1973-4, ?cleaned and retouched, C. Mealey and J. Brealey; 2010-12, conserved, S. Plender (Sophia Plender).
