oil on canvas

canvas: 26 by 36 in.; 66 by 91.4 cm.

framed: 33 by 43 ½ in.; 83.8 by 110.5 cm.

The canvas is wax-lined and stable on its stretcher. The brightly colored image reads very well beneath clear varnish and craquelure is faintly visible throughout and stable. A horizontal line indicating a stretcher bar is also faintly visible along the top edge but not distracting. Under UV inspection, a few spots of restoration are visible in the clouds, and one spot in the center of the ground at the bottom. Minor frame abrasion is present along all four edges and the varnish fluoresces unevenly at the two bottom corners. Overall there is very little retouching visible and the painting is in good condition and should hang as is. Offered in a decoratively carved giltwood frame with a nameplate reading "Philip Wouverman."
