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 along the upper margin, and stable. The paint surface is slightly dirty, and the varnish is slightly discoloured. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals a 1cm. band of retouching along the lower margin, scattered retouchings along the other three margins, minor retouchings throughout the sky, and a small area in the corner of the house above the fence centre. The buildings, figures and rest of the foreground appear to be otherwise untouched, and the painting is in overall good condition.
