oil on canvas

canvas: 15 ⅞ by 11 ¾ in.; 40.3 by 29.8 cm

framed: 22 ¼ by 18 ¼ in.; 56.5 by 46.4 cm

The canvas is relined and stable on its stretcher. The image reads well but the varnish may have darkened slightly. Earlier restoration visible in the following areas: above the skirt on the left hand side and the left part of the table in the lower right corner. Under UV inspection, the varnish fluoresces unevenly in parts of the upper background. Additional signs of restoration are visible under UV light in the sitter's lowered hand and shell. Painting can be cleaned and re-varnished but can be hung in its present state. Offered in an elaborately carved wood frame with a nameplate that reads "J.A. Grimou."
