Object information
Object category
canvas, oil paint
The original coarse plain-weave linen canvas support of this painting has been lined onto fine linen canvas and has added corner sections which have altered the format from an oval to a rectangle. There is a badly retouched tear in the far shoulder and some light retouching in the eye sockets. The spandrel additions have heavy craquelure. This painting has a dull, bloomed appearance due to the discolouration of the varnish and in some places, particularly over the figure, the vertical brushstrokes of the varnish are visible. Previous recorded treatment: 1953, conserved, Dr Hell; 1987, conserved, National Maritime Museum (Sophia Plender).
