Putti gathering bundles of reeds


oil on canvas

canvas: 38 by 28 in.; 96.5 by 71.1 cm.

The canvas is lined and stable on its stretcher. The image reads well beneath the varnish which appears thicker or built up in some areas. Old repaired horizontal tears or scratches are slightly visible to the naked eye at about 6 inches from the top edge, at center, and about 6 inches from the bottom edge. There are two cleaning tests to the arms of two putti visible to the naked eye, which illustrate the impact of the current varnish. Under UV inspection, scattered, broadly applied retouching is visible in the hair and wings of the two standing putti, on the right putto's ankle, along the aforementioned scratches, and in the reeds of the right putto, and more finely applied retouching is also visible scattered throughout. Offered in a thin gilt metal frame.
