oil on canvas, unframed

unframed: 123.5 x 199 cm.; 48 5/8 x 78 3/8 in.

The canvas is lined, and the paint surface is rather dirty with a discoloured and blanched varnish. There are small discoloured retouchings visible throughout the background. Inspection under ultraviolet light confirms this, and further reveals some more concentrated patches in the background, such as two above Christ's chest both approx. 5 x 5 cm., in the lower left and upper left and right corners, and to a repaired horizontal tear in the lowest section of the white drapery lower centre. It also reveals much more sparsely scattered small spots and fine lines in Christ - as well as a few larger spots in the darker pigments of his beard and the shadows of his face and legs. The painting is in overall fair condition for a painting of this size and would benefit from cleaning and some attention.
