ALESSANDRO MAGNASCO, CALLED LISSANDRINO

NUNS MAKING WICKER FLASKS IN AN INTERIOR


oil on canvas

24¾ by 18 in.; 61 by 45.7 cm.

Condition Report

The canvas is lined and stable on its stretcher. The image reads well despite a slightly darkened varnish. A small dot of repair is visible as an inconsistency to the canvas texture at the upper left. Some frame abrasion is visible on all 4 edges but is not distracting. Under UV inspection, a thick varnish is difficult to read through, but an earlier campaign of small retouches seems to be underneath. More recent retouching is obscured. Offered in a decoratively painted black and giltwood frame.
