Nudo di donna


signed g. de Chirico (lower right)

oil on canvas laid down on board

dimensions: 20.2 by 12.7cm., 8 by 5in.

Painted circa mid 1930s.


The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by the Fondazione Giorgio e Isa de Chirico.

The canvas is laid down on board and the board is sound. There appears to be no signs of retouching visible under UV light. There is frame abrasion to the extreme edges with some associated historic adhesive and gilt remnants and a small canvas loss to the lower right corner. There are several fine lines of craquelure and paint shrinkage to the composition, the most prominent of which are the vertical lines down the back of the figure. There are two tiny paint losses to the centre of the figure, only visible upon close inspection. There are a few minor surface accretions and fly spots in places. This work is in overall good condition.
