A COUPLE EMBRACING BENEATH A TREE, NEAR A CALM WATERWAY WITH FIGURES IN A BOAT, AND A ROCKY SHORE BEYOND


bears signature and date lower center: vernet . fo. 175(4)?

oil on panel

5⅞ by 7 in.; 14.8 by 18 cm.

The panel is flat, uncradled and beveled on all four edges. The painted surface reads well overall, with no losses or instabilities to the surface. There are still some passages of preserved impasto, the most notable in the foliage at upper left. There is a very faint pattern of craquelure visible, though this is not distracting. UV light reveals only a few very small spots of retouching scattered at the extreme edges, as well as one spot in the rock and one spot in the water at center right. The varnish around the seated figures in the foreground fluoresces slightly unevenly. The painting is in overall good condition, and it can be hung in its present condition. Offered in a decorative gilt frame.
