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, very slightly bowed on the lower margin, and stable. The paint surface is relatively cleaned and the varnish is slightly discolored. Inspection under UV reveals few and small retouchings scattered in the upper half of the sky, and minor strengthenings in the tall tree and in some of the buildings and in the legs of the figures. The opaque varnish impedes further inspection, but the painting appears to be relatively untouched and in good overall condition.
