JEAN-LÉON GÉRÔME | Marchand ambulant au Caire

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: oil on canvas

Condition Report: The following condition report was kindly provided by Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.: This painting was probably originally 4 inches shorter than it is today. It seems that the artist himself added a strip of canvas across the top in order to enlarge the composition; this original join is slightly visible. The paint layer is clean and stable. Under ultraviolet light, one can see a slight residue of a milky varnish. There is some restoration in the lower left portion of the figure's yellow robe, and a number of small finely placed retouches in the upper left quadrant that are not easily visible under ultraviolet light. The condition of the figures on the right side of the picture, the street below the figures and the animals is terrific. This picture is in beautiful state and should be hung in its current condition."This lot is offered for sale subject to Sotheby's Conditions of Business, which are available on request and printed in Sotheby's sale catalogues. The independent reports contained in this document are provided for prospective bidders' information only and without warranty by Sotheby's or the Seller."
