oil on canvas
99 by 99 cm. 39¼ by 39¼ in.
The colour in the printed catalogue is fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is slightly softer in the original.
This work is in good condition. The canvas is sound. Close inspection reveals some faint and minor craquelure to some of the heavy impasto, which is in keeping with the age of the painting. There is a more pronounced, lifted craquelure to the right centre of the canvas. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals some restoration to the craquelure in the lower left and lower right quadrants.
