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


Onorio Marinari

Saint Catherine of Alexandria

Oil on canvas, in a gilt wood frame with some chips.


The original canvas is lined. The lining is in a good condition.

 

There is a horizontal stretcher bar mark visible to the top of the composition.

 

The paint layer is stable and secure and in very good preserved condition.

 

The textured brushwork through the drapery, in particular, is in its original state and the highlights through the seat back and the braided edging to the cushion are unaffected by any previous conservation intervention.

 

Discoloured restoration is visible to the sky between the columns, to St. Catherine’s left shoulder and scattered through her dress; there has been some minor strengthening to her eyelid and nostril.

 

The dark shadow to the cushion has been slightly compromised.

 

The varnish has discoloured and degraded and does not afford good saturation.

 

It’s removal would enhance the chromatic and tonal values, inherent across the composition.


"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."
