AN INTERIOR SCENE WITH PEASANTS PLAYING CARDS
signed on the chair lower left: J. Peypers
oil on panel
canvas: 13¾ by 16⅝ in.; 34.9 by 42.2 cm.
framed: 21½ by 24½ in.; 54.6 by 62.2 cm.
The canvas is lined. The paint surface especially on the central figures of the composition has been well preserved, though there has been some minor thinning to the background like at center right. A few pindots of possible taint from the varnish are here and there, like at center right, between the seated figure and the couple in the background. Under UV light two areas of possible retouching fluoresce on the bottom left quadrant, and top right quadrant. Other spots of retouching are here and there like on the teal jug on the ground. Painting can be hung as is. Offered in a carved, giltwood frame.
