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


Jan Breughel the Younger

Still life of flowers in a wooden bucket


It is evenly chamfered on three sides, the fourth side, the left hand edge, has been replaced by a recent 1.5 cm wide oak addition, to correct damage possibly caused by worm infestation.

In raking light a stable vertical fracture is also visible running parallel to the recent addition.


The panel is stable and secure and the City of Antwerp stamp is easily visible.


There is a stable repaired central vertical join with minimal replaced paint loss along it.


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

The paint texture and impasted highlights are in excellent preserved state and fine details to the flowers are intact.


Under u-v light a very minor scattering of small re-touchings can be seen across the surface; a small loss to the central imperial lily and to a small area to the lower left corner, where the paint is slightly raised.


One or two small areas of the more thinly applied sketchy background layer have been slightly compromised.


The chromatic and tonal values are very well maintained and there would a beneficial improvement were the discoloured varnish removed.
