oil on copper

copper: 7 by 5 ½ in.; 17.8 by 14 cm.

framed:12 by 10 ½ in.; 30.5 by 26.7 cm.

The copper support is stable, and there is an ever so faint undulation to the surface. The painted image appears to be in good condition overall, with colors and details well-preserved, such as the flowers and her jewelry. The varnish is somewhat dull, but the painting presents a lovely image. There is a small isolated loss near the lower center at the top of her middle finger and one minute loss near the upper left corner at the edge. Inspection under UV reveals some very finely and well-applied applied strokes of cosmetic retouching to her face, as well as a few scattered fine strokes in her costume. Some additional spots of retouching scattered in the background and near the lower edge, including all four corners. The flowers, her pearl necklace, her hair, and much of her costume appears untouched. The painting can certainly hang in its current state, but may benefit from a freshened varnish. Offered in a giltwood frame with a decorative liner.
