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
canvas, oil paint
Plain-weave linen canvas. The ground is buff, with grey priming under the sky. Glue-paste lined; the original tacking margins are present. 4mm at the left of the canvas is unpainted. Like its pair, DPG3, this painting’s stretcher appears to have been enlarged at some point, possibly at the same time as the lining was carried out. The lining is poorly attached to the original canvas. The verso is primed and there is an indistinct red seal on the reverse of the stretcher. There are areas of abrasion and restored old losses. Previous recorded treatment: 1911, cleaned, Holder; 1935, frame paraffined; 1953–5, Dr Hell; 1986, surface cleaned and some retouching, Area Museum Service for South Eastern England (Sophia Plender).
