oil on canvas

canvas: 33 by 22 ¾ in.; 84.5 by 57.8 cm.

framed: 39 ¼ by 29 ⅞ in.; 100 by 75.9 cm.  

The canvas is lined and is stable on its stretcher. The overall images reads well beneath slightly old and dulled varnish. There appears to be an inconsistency to the varnish that runs vertical alongside the vase in the right background. Some of the details have sunk with age, but others remain well-preserved. Inspection under UV reveals an old milky varnish. Some old loose retouching is visible here and there in the background, as well as some small but fine strokes in the vase. There are only very few strokes of retouching or strengthening in the flowers. Offered in a decorative gilt frame.
