Property from an American Private Collection
Ducks on a Pond
signed and dated Bruno Liljefors / 1914 lower left
oil on canvas
70 by 101cm., 27½ by 39¾in.
The canvas has not been lined and is somewhat loose on its stretcher- it could benefit from some light retensioning.
There are some small areas of paint loss as visible in the catalogue illustration, notably in the centre of the lower framing edge and along the left framing edge. There is no visible retouching under ultra-violet light.
This work appears to be in good original condition.
Presented in a decorative gilt frame.
