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 canvas has been relined, the paint surface is slightly dirty and the varnish has darkened a bit. The painting is in overall fair condition. There are some small areas of paint that are beginning to flake above the sitter's head and in the lower right corner, but they appear stable. There are some very small discoloured patches of retouching to the right of the sitter and in the very top of the foliage, upper left. Inspection under ultraviolet light is hindered by the opacity of the varnish and only reveals retouching to the aforementioned blemishes.

Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

William, Count of Schaumburg-Lippe, is an important military figure in German history. He was a commander of some repute who gained a reputation as a particularly fine military theorist and defensive tactician. He fought throughout the Seven Years' War, and in 1762 led allied troops into Portugal, countering the Spanish invasion. He is commemorated in a bust in the Walhalla Temple in Bavaria, the 'hall of fame' of important figures in Germany's history.
