Passing/Possing (St. Thomas the Apostle)


signed, titled and dated 04 on the reverse

oil and enamel on canvas, in artist's frame

framed: 84 by 84 in. 213.4 by 213.4 cm.

This work is in very good condition overall. The canvas is very lightly slack. There is a faint layer of dust that has adhered to the deepest crevices of the frame. Upon extremely close inspection there is a minor pigment accumulation to the left forearm of the composition, likely from the time of execution. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Framed.
