oil on canvas, unframed

canvas: 46 by 57 in.; 116.8 by 144.8 cm.

The canvas is lined and stable on its stretcher though it is no longer taut. The image is a bit difficult to read due to discolored varnish and abrasion. Several tears and small losses are visible to the naked eye, including a tear on the old man's waist, a T-shaped tear above his head, a longer tear on Isaac's waist, a small loss on the woman's waist, several smaller tears in the background, and flaking/lifting above the woman's head. A vertical canvas seam is visible through the center of the woman. Abrasion and rubbing is present throughout and the varnish has blanched on the bottom half of the composition. Under UV inspection, all aforementioned repairs are visible, though they are also visible to the naked eye. We recommend contacting an outside restorer for advice on treatment of this canvas. Offered unframed.
