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, flat and stable. The paint surface is dirty and the varnish is discoloured. There is a small loss at the tip of Christ's fourth finger and a thin horizontal surface split extending from the upper left margin (4 cm). Another surface split extends from the opposite side of the painting (3 cm long). A number of discoloured retouchings are visible throughout Christ's face, beard, neck, red robe, and hand. Inspection under UV light is impeded by the opaque varnish, but confirms the aforementioned retouchings. It is impossible to discern further intervention. The painting is in overall fair 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. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot.
