Object information
Object category
painting
Support/medium
canvas, oil paint
Medium plean-weave linen canvas, lined onto coarser similar. The original tacking margins have been retained and are stapled at the top and side, and elsewhere the margins have been glued to the stretcher. A paper label on the verso reads '172'. There is some thinness of the paint layer, particularly in the background, and various fills have been retouched and are well matched. Two, more obvious, fills in the top quarter of the painting, near the right and left edges, are easily visible in normal light. The varnish has discoloured to an orangey tone, and is thicker in the interstices and paint texture; this gives parts of the painting (particularly the lighter areas, such as the flesh) an uneven, mottled appearance.
