Property from the Antoinette and Patrick Murphy Collection
JOHN BELLANY, R.A.
WOMAN OF ASCHAFFENBURG
oil on canvas
76 by 61cm.; 30 by 24in.
The canvas is original. The canvas undulates very slightly in places, predominantly due to inconsistencies with the stretcher bars in the lower part of the work. There is some very light surface dirt and dust in places. Subject to the above the work appears to be in excellent overall condition.
Inspection under ultra violet light reveals no obvious signs of retouching.
The work is held within a stepped linen and gilded slip within a painted wooden frame.
