LA PLAINE DU CROZON, FINISTÈRE
Signed Lebasque (lower right);
Oil on canvas

Framed: 36¾ by 47¼ in. (93.3 by 120 cm)
Painted circa 1923.
The canvas is unlined. There is some slight undulation in all four corners, most notably to the lower left and upper right corners. Along the left and right edges there are a few pinholes, likely inherent to the artist's process. There is an extremely minor loss to the pigment near the right edge, approximately six inches above the lower right corner. There is some extremely minor frame abrasion along the perimeter. Under UV inspection, there are a few very minor nailhead sized strokes of inpainting along the right edge. Two very minor strokes of retouching in the sky and one in the water. A couple very minor strokes of retouching along the upper left edge and the left upper edge. The work is in good condition.
