Maison près de l’étang


signed Bernard Buffet and dated 60 (upper left)

oil on canvas

81 by 130cm., 31⅞ by 51⅛in.

Painted in 1960. 


The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by the Galerie Maurice Garnier.

The canvas is not lined. Inspection under UV light reveals some small spots of retouching along the lower edge and a few spots to the right part of the upper edge and to the upper left corner, away from the main composition. There are two small paint losses to the centre of the left edge (the largest of which is approx. 1cm), not visible when framed. There are a few fine lines of stable craquelure in the black pigment, only visible upon close inspection. There are one or two fly spots in places. This work is in overall very good condition.
