Object information
Object category
painting
Support/medium
panel (oak), oil paint
This possibly unfinished work is painted on an oak panel consisting of two horizontally joined members. There is a series of fine blisters at the top in the sky. The panel join is loose at the sides and needs rejoining, and there are some small losses in this region, particularly at the edges. This painting has been partially cleaned at some point and discoloured varnish has been left in the dips and hollows, which has a disturbing effect on the lighter passages. Some of the remaining old varnish is blanched. Previous recorded treatment: 1922, varnished; 1953–5, conserved, Dr Hell (Sophia Plender).
