Print/illustration included in
Three-member horizontally joined Netherlandish oak panel with a gentle convex warp. The back of the panel is cradled, with nine horizontal fixed bars and nine slats, which no longer move. The edges have been modified, indicating that the panel has been cut down on all sides. Dendrochronology indicates that the panel derived from trees felled after 1620. There are remnants of two figures in the sky (an angel) and at the bottom of the tree to the left (a child), visible in ordinary light and under infrared light (see above). There is a 20cm scratch down the back of Hagar’s dress with brittle blisters at the top, and a diagonal scratch below her proper right shin; the old restoration of these scratches now appears slightly dark. Three fairly small cracks can be seen at the right panel edge in the hill and there is some raised craquelure and old paint loss in the nearby sky, towards the top right corner. The hill is very thinly painted and slightly abraded. No records of previous treatments exist for this painting (Sophia Plender).
