Object information
Object category
painting
Physical connection
Reference in ‘composite artworks’: artworks that are/were connected, such as alterpieces, decorative pieces incorporated in panelling, and works of art that were intended to be displayed together, such as pendants and series.
Support/medium
panel (oak), oil paint
Single-member oak panel with horizontal grain. There is an indistinct broken seal on the reverse. Pale ground. The wood grain is fairly evident through the paint layers; this is worse where the paint has been abraded, such as in the sky, which has been in-painted. There is an old scratch in the centre of the sky, towards the top, and the clouds bear a fine craquelure. There are two painted-out figures either side of the boy in the foreground. UV light shows that this change is a historic intervention made after the artist completed the painting. Cleaned and restored by Dr Hell, 1952–3 (Sophia Plender).
