Condition Report

Property from Various Owners is available to view at the Sotheby’s Greenford Park warehouse, 13 and 16 – 18 September (10 - 4pm), by appointment.


The canvases are both lined, the paint surfaces are dirty and the varnishes are discoloured. A slight degree of wear is visible throughout both compositions. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals both canvases have received two campaigns of fairly minimal restoration. The older campaign is found more scattered in the latter canvas, notably in the flesh tones of the female figure; the female figure in the former canvas also has some minimal retouching. The more recent campaign is confined largely to the upper margins and to small areas in the backgrounds of each painting. The pair 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.

Cataloguing

Provenance

Anonymous sale, London, Christie's South Kensington, 27 October 1999, lot 345;

With Baumkotter Gallery, London, from whom acquired on 16 March 2000, by the present owner.

Catalogue Note

The figures in these paintings are the work of another hand, which has previously been tentatively identified with the artist Kaspar Jacob van Opstal the Younger (1654-1717), also from Antwerp, who is known to have collaborated with other still life painters. The former painting of this pair bears close relation to the work sold at Christie's, Amsterdam, 26 March 1988, lot 158 (the pendant to which includes a moor, rather than another lady).
