Object information
Object category
painting
Support/medium
canvas, oil paint
The painting is in good condition, and the cracks in the paint surface are secure. The lined plain weave canvas is stretched on the old stretcher, which has diagonal corner bars and probably dates from the late 18th century. The paint layers are very thinly applied with some very fine detail over the thick grey priming layer. Discoloration in the blue pigment in the sky seems characteristic of smalt. Previous recorded treatment: 1911, relined, Holder; 2015, cleaned, relined and restored, N. Ryder (Sophia Plender).
