oil on panel

panel: 5 by 4 ⅛ in.; 12.7 by 10.5 cm.  

framed: 11 ⅛ by 10 in.; 28.3 by 25.4 cm.  

The small panel is planar and uncradled. The edges are beveled on three edges, and there are some losses to the wood on the reverse of the panel. The painting has not been recently restored. The image reads relatively well beneath an old, discolored and dulled varnish. Some detail is well preserved in the contours of his clothing, pipe, and hat. Inspection under UV reveals a milky varnish that impedes some inspection, though it fluoresces unevenly near the top and lower edges. There may be some lines of strengthening in the background near the head of the figure and some small spots here and there in the background. Offered in a dark frame with a gilt liner.
