La Cuisine


porte le cachet de l'atelier (au dos)

huile sur papier marouflé sur toile

Peint vers 1954.

47,2 x 58,3 cm; 18⅝ x 23 in.


La Fondation Georges Rouault a confirmé l’authenticité de cette œuvre.

Oil on paper laid down on canvas. There is an uneven varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating, however examination under UV light appears to reveal no evidence of retouching. There are creases associated with cracks along the extreme edges possibly inherent to the laying down process. There are thin lines of craquelure to the most thickly applied pigment. There is a small paint loss towards the lower right corner. Impasto is thick. This work is in overall very good condition.
