oil on canvas
canvas: 28 by 22¼ in.; 71 by 56.5 cm.
framed: 33 by 27 in.; 83.8 by 68.6 cm.
Canvas is lined. A decorative image reads well. Inspection under UV reveals scattered retouching throughout, with what appears to be a spot of repair on the bottom of the left columns in the foreground. Some retouches have discolored and are visible to the naked eye like on the clouds at center on the left edge. Offered in a painted wood frame.
