From an Important Private Collection
1818 - 1897
Figures on a Sunlit Street
oil on panel
Unframed: 43 by 57cm., 17 by 22½in.
Framed: 67 by 80.5cm., 26½ by 31¾in.
The panel is flat and even. Under close inspection, a faint c. 6cm horizontal hairline crack is visible near the middle of the left edge, and there is some localised hairline craquelure in the paint surface which is not distracting. Ultra-violet light reveals some strokes of retouching primarily in the left half of the sky, and over the architecture only old residual traces of varnish appear to be visible. This work is in good overall condition and ready to hang.
