Condition Report

The following condition report is provided by Hamish Dewar who is an external specialist and not an employee of Sotheby's:


Michele Pace, called Michelangelo del Campidoglio

Portrait of a blue greyhound


Structural Condition

The large canvas has been lined onto a fixed wooden stretcher with cross batons in the corners and would appear to be structurally sound and the overall pattern of drying craquelure is secure.


Paint surface

The paint surface has a reasonably even varnish layer with some matter areas corresponding to retouchings. This is most noticeable in the dark pigments of the foliage above the hound's back and in the trees and foliage on the right of the composition. This should be simply resolved by revarnishing to ensure a more even surface coating. Inspection under ultraviolet light shows quite extensive retouchings throughout the composition.


Summary

The painting would therefore appear to be in stable condition and the only work that might be required is revarnishing to ensure an even surface coating. The extent of retouchings applied in the past should be noted. There may be further retouchings which I could not identify under ultraviolet light.
