FREIFRAU HERMINA ROZÁLIA EMILIA VON PROBSTNER NÉE PRIHRADNY (1839-1918)
signed and dated Boemm. pt .1870. lower right
oil on canvas
unframed, oval: 127 by 95cm., 50 by 37¼in.
The canvas has not been lined and is securely attached to a wooden stretcher.
The paint surface is stable.
There are some minor surface scratches in the lower half of the composition, and some minor, scattered dirt spots are visible but are not distracting.
Inspection under ultra-violet light reveals a thick layer of varnish which makes the surface quite difficult to read. However, with the exception of some small spots of cosmetic retouching, this work appears to be in good condition.
Presented and sold unframed.
