Miguel Covarrubias

1904 - 1957

Balinesa


Signed Covarrubias (lower right) 

Oil on Masonite

20 by 24 in. (50.8 by 61 cm)

Framed: 28 by 32 in. (71.1 by 81.3 cm)

Painted circa 1930. 

This work is in very good condition overall, taking its age into account. The panel is flat and even. The colors are vibrant. The darker colors of the right bicep, elbow and shoulder have developed some very fine craquelure in drying. This is not an indication of any instability, and the media layer is stable overall. Minor frame abrasion and associated minor media losses are present along the extreme edges of the work; these areas are not visible in its current frame. Under UV: no evidence of inpainting becomes apparent. The work is ready to hang. Framed.
