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 panel is uncradled, slightly bowed on either side, and bevelled on all four edges. The paint surface is relatively clean, and the varnish is clean and even. The bravura brushwork appears fresh and well-preserved. Inspection under UV light reveals only cosmetic small retouchings: in the darks beneath the ledge lower left, in the proper left cuff and hand of the cobbler, to a small surface scratch in the centre of his jacket (1cm long), in the foreground lower right, at the centre of the right margin, some pin prick retouchings scattered in the figure of the mother and child, and along the upper margin. The painting is in overall good condition.
