The following condition report has been prepared by Hamish Dewar Ltd. Structural Condition The canvas is unlined and is securely attached to what certainly appears to be the artist's original, keyed wooden stretcher with one central vertical cross member. There are slight stretcher bar marks. The tacking and turnover edges have been reinforced with a strip lining. This is ensuring an even and stable structural support. The painting was not removed from the frame for the purpose of this examination. Paint Surface The paint surface is stable and has an even varnish layer. Inspection under ultraviolet light shows the paint surface to fluoresce very unevenly due to the nature of the artist's materials and technique as well as uneveness resulting from the selective cleaning of the opaque varnish layers. Ultraviolet light highlights small scattered retouchings including a few spots in the sky and a few small spots along the lower horizontal framing edge corresponding to the stretcher bar. There may be further retouchings beneath old opaque varnish layers which are not easily identifiable under ultraviolet light. Summary The painting would therefore appear to be in very good and stable condition. Please telephone the department on +44 (0) 207 293 6424 if you have any questions regarding the present work.
