Property of a Lady
FRANK MYERS BOGGS
1855 - 1926
LA SEINE À PARIS: QUAIS DES AUGUSTINS
signed FRANK - BOGGS, inscribed Paris and dated 1922 (lower left)
oil on canvas
25 ¾ x 26 ½ inches (65.4 x 67.3 cm)
The work is strip lined and appears to retain its original stretchers. The surface appears to be slightly dirty. The work retains frame abrasions along the extreme outer edges of the canvas which have been inpainted in scattered spots accordingly. Under UV light there appears to be a small spot of inpaint in the white bridge at lower right with a corresponding patch repair on the reverse. Though some of the original pigments fluoresce under UV, they appear to be the artist's original.
