oil on panel laid down on board
12¾ by 16½ in.
32.4 by 41.9 cm
Oil on panel laid down on board. The work is visibly dirty. There is a vertical 2 inch area of pigment at center left that is quite textured and appears differently than the rest of the surface. A very small dent at center left. Frame abrasion along lower left and lower center edges. Under UV: heavy varnish fluoresces green unevenly, which makes a review of the surface somewhat challenging. No apparent issues, however. Ready to hang in its current state.
