The Raising of Lazarus


oil on canvas

unframed: 147 x 234 cm.; 57 7/8 x 92 1/8 in.

framed: 167 x 267 cm.; 65 3/4 x 105 1/8 in.

The canvas is lined, the paint surface is slightly dirty and the varnish is slightly discoloured. The weave of the canvas and dark ground is quite visible. In raking light it is possible to discern two vertical seams running the height of the canvas through the figure in yellow on the left and just to the right of centre. There is a horizontal retouched crack in the paint surface running through the dark background of the canvas above centre. Inspection under ultraviolet light appears to reveal relatively little intervention. There is retouching along the aforementioned crack, in the hood and lower back of the figure in yellow, to two small areas in the shoulder and neck of the man supporting Lazarus, in the branch upper centre, in the headdress of the standing woman on the right, in the hair of the woman kneeling, and in the face of the man to the right of Christ. There appear to be broader areas of retouching to the sky upper right but the majority of the canvas appears to be largely untouched and in overall good condition.
