Condition Report

Canvas is lined. A decorative image reads well, though a little pressed. A few dots of loss are scattered here and there, like a tiny dot at center left and three dots in the ground below the table at left. Frame abrasions with minor associated loss are along the edges. Inspection under UV reveals scattered spots of retouching to the sky in the background, the figures and ground in the foreground, and along the edges. Some retouches addressing old craquelure have discolored and are visible to the naked eye, like a dot in the bottom of the blue dress of the lady at right. Offered framed.

Cataloguing

Provenance

Anonymous sale ("The Property of a Lady"), London, Christie's, 17 July 1992, lot 21;

With Lane Fine Art, London;

From whom acquired 9 June 1995.

Catalogue Note

Apart from his marriage in London circa 1729, very little is known of Nebot's life. He had a particular interest in depicting market scenes that included vegetable stalls, fish markets, and fruit vendors. Although Nebot initially specialized in topographical scenes of London, the urban scene in this painting is closer in style to the works by Peter Angelis (1685 - 1734).
