huile sur toile

Peint vers 1865-66.

The work has been examined framed. The canvas is lined. There is an uneven and milky varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating, however examination under UV light appears to reveal retouching in a thin glaze throughout the composition, consistent with craquelure being restored and a spot of retouching (approx. 3 by 5cm wide) to the upper part of the left edge. This work is in overall fairly good condition.
