Description: oil on canvas
Dimensions: 68 by 47cm., 26¾ by 18½in.
Medium: oil on canvas
Condition Report: The canvas has not been lined. There are some scattered fine lines of craquelure on the paint surface, notably towards the centre-right of the composition, and two areas (centre-left and lower centre) which fluoresce quite strongly under ultra-violet light. However, this appears to be the artist's pigment rather than restoration. The picture is in overall good condition and ready to hang. Presented in a narrow wooden frame.
