Nature morte au réveil


signed Bernard Buffet and dated 56 (upper right)

oil on canvas

72.3 by 50.2cm., 28½ by 19¾in.

Framed: 95.7 by 73.6cm., 37¾ by 29in.

Painted in 1956. 


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

The canvas is not lined. Inspection under UV light reveals a slightly uneven varnish but there do not appear to be any signs of retouching. The work appears to have been re-stretched at some point. There is a slight stretcher-bar mark running along the upper edge, only visible under a raking light. There is a slight protrusion just below the signature relating to a minor impact from behind. There is some intermittent frame abrasion (with some associated tiny paint losses) and a few gold leaf remnants to parts of the extreme edges. There a few minor surface accretions in places. This work is in overall good condition.
