Saint Sebastian Tended by the Pious Women


oil on canvas

unframed: 118 x 83.4 cm.; 46 1/2 x 37 7/8 in.

framed: 126.3 x 91.9 cm.; 49 3/4 x 36 1/8 in.


The canvas is lined, the paint surface is dirty, and the varnish is rather discoloured. The dark ground has become more visible through much of the painting, and there are also numerous scattered pinprick losses (visible in the illustration). Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals broad strokes of retouching throughout the background, as well as in the drapery of the pious women. There are smaller retouchings scattered through the figures' flesh tones. The painting is in overall fair condition.
