painting
Support/medium
panel (oak), oil paint
Two-member oak panel with horizontal grain and beveled edges. There is some sharp, high impasto in the landscape and figures, but the goats and cows are more smoothly painted. There is a horizontal split above the lower right corner and two other cracks below the sheep in the foreground. Worm holes in the lower panel member have weakened the panel and caused some cracks. The join, cracks and holes in the reverse of the panel have been repaired. The paint surface is generally in good condition but the sky is slightly abraded. Previous recorded treatment: 1864, cleaned, Mr Merritt of Langham Place; 2000 frame conserved B. Pearce; 2004, panel repaired paint secured cleaned and restored, S. Plender (Sophia Plender).
