pendant

Support/medium
panel (oak), oil paint
Single-member oak panel with horizontal wood grain, chamfered on the reverse. The grain is clearly visible through the paint layers and there is some minor tenting along the grain in the bottom left. The sky has some drying cracks and there is a diagonal scratch through the figure in the bottom right corner. Some retouchings appear slightly matt. There is a pentimento of a figure under the dog towards the bottom right. The bluish colour of the greens in the landscape and foliage indicate that their blanching and fading is due to the discoloration of a fugitive yellow pigment. Restored by Dr Hell 1952–3 (Sophia Plender).
