Christ preaching in the wilderness


signed and dated on the reverse of the canvas: P. Arciprete / 1854; and inscribed on the reverse of the stretcher: al rev. p. G... somella in segno di stima e rispetto P arciprete fecit 

oil on canvas, unlined

unframed: 20.3 x 31.9 cm.; 8 x 12 1/2 in. 

framed: 26.4 x 37.5 cm.; 10 1/2 x 14 3/4 in.  

The canvas is unlined, the paint surface is slightly dirty, and the varnish is slightly discoloured and matte. There is some evidence of frame abrasion around the margins, resulting in some pinprick losses, lower centre and centre right, and a handful of small, discoloured retouchings in the upper right corner. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals some further very small retouchings along the margin, in the lower left corner, for example, but apparently little other intervention. The majority of the composition is untouched and in very good condition.
