Description: SEVERIN ROESEN
(american 1815-1872)
STILL LIFE WITH FRUIT AND CHAMPAGNE
Signed ''SRoesen'' (conjoined) bottom right, oil on canvas
17 3/16 x 22 1/4 in. (43.7 x 56.5cm)
provenance:
Private Collection, Pennsylvania.
Condition Report: In generally good overall condition, apart from some areas having retouch and restoration. The canvas also has some surface craquelure and there are some generally minor impressions from the stretcher bars verso. On the back of the canvas are three small squarish patches with corresponding restoration. The three patches are located at lower center, upper center right and upper center. The restoration associated with the patch at upper center is located at a green leaf near the upper center of the canvas. The restoration associated with the patch at lower center is largely located to parts of the yellow apple at lower center. The restoration at center right is to several of the grapes in that area. Some of the restoration in the patched areas extends beyond/includes some retouch to areas close to, but not directly at the patches, including at upper center and at lower center. There is additional minor retouch in localized areas of canvas, including to parts of apple at lower center left, minor retouch at upper left, slight retouch to upper center in background below top of frame, and one of ends of vines is strengthened at upper center below top of frame.
There are areas of the painting at/near bottom of canvas, and in a square-shaped area beneath the edge of the shelf at lower left that are dark under u.v. light, juxtaposed against areas that are pale green under u.v. light. We believe that the areas that read as dark under u.v. light are not areas of restoration; instead we believe they are areas wherein the varnish has been selectively removed/wiped, leaving a somewhat streaky appearance in some areas at bottom edge of canvas.
Frame: 21 1/2 x 26 1/2 x 1 3/4 in.
