Description: AMERICAN SCHOOL
(19th century)
PORTRAIT OF PRESIDENT FRANKLIN PIERCE, HALF LENGTH
Oil on canvas
30 x 25 1/8 in. (76.2 x 63.8cm)
provenance:
New Orleans Auction, New Orleans, sale of May 5, 1993, lot 29.

Condition Report: Frame: 36 1/2 x 31 1/2 in. the relined canvas in generally fair overall condition, with prominent surface craquelure throughout, with some of paint displaying some cupping - mostly at right - where craquelure is most pronounced. Some areas of the painting are difficult to accurately 'read' under u.v. light due to residual varnish and pigments used. Pierce's head and hair are in generally fine overall shape, with only minor localized retouch to part of left side of face and some apparently newer linear retouch at his jawline. There is some scattered restoration to parts of vestment, an area of restoration at back of chair and some restoration in areas of background.
