The following condition report is provided by Henry Gentle who is an external specialist and not an employee of Sotheby's:


Pompeo Batoni Portrait of Thomas Orde Oil on canvas, in a re-painted gilt wood frame in good condition


The original canvas is lined and the lining is stable and secure with good tension. The paint layer is in a good preserved state; raking light shows that it is slightly raised and stretcher marks are visible. A discoloured and degraded varnish presents as an opaque layer which flattens the image. Under u-v light minor repaired loss can be seen to the sitter's forehead and in the background, upper right. The paint texture, particularly the impasted paint to the highlights of the braiding of the waistcoat and the cuffs, is very well preserved. The chromatic and tonal nuances are retained and the lively and energetic brushwork is in very good original condition. Removal of the varnish would improve the overall tonality.


"In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective, qualified opinion. Prospective buyers should also refer to any Important Notices regarding this sale, which are printed in the Sale Catalogue.

NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD AS IS" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS PRINTED IN THE SALE CATALOGUE."
