Condition Report

Property from the SØR Rusche Collection is available to view at Sotheby’s, New Bond Street, 13 – 18 September (weekdays 9am – 4.30pm; weekend 12-5pm).


The canvas is lined. The paint surface is relatively clean, and the varnish is clear and even. Inspection under UV light reveals only very small cosmetic retouchings with small spots scattered sparsely in the background, in the yellow journal and its open pages, in the skull, and in the tablecloth, with slightly more concentrated areas in the clasp of the left most book, along the centre of the left margin, and in the lower left corner. The painting is in overall good condition.


The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition.

In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades.

Literature

H.-J. Raupp (ed.), Niederländische Malerei des. 17. Jahrhunderts der SØR Rusche-Sammlung, vol. 5, Stilleben und Tierstücke, Münster/Hamburg/London 2004, pp. 86-89, cat. no. 13, reproduced in colour (as Circle of de Claeuw).

Catalogue Note

We are grateful to Dr. Fred G. Meijer for endorsing this attribution to Jacques de Claeuw and for noting that this painting is stylistically typical of the artist in 1664. It would appear that an original signature was included at the upper margin of the book cover and was later washed over before a new signature was added. Over time the wash has become more transparent revealing some small indications of the original signature, the flouish underneath, and the date, 1664.
