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.
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).
