oil on canvas, unframed 

canvas: 36 ½ by 49 ¼ in.; 92.7 by 125.1 cm.

The canvas is lined and stable on its stretcher. The painting has not been restored in some time, but it appears to be in good condition overall. The image reads strongly despite being beneath a yellowed and dulled varnish. The still life elements appear well preserved. There is a scuff in the lower right corner and two thin scratches in the lower left, all of which are not distracting. Inspection under UV reveals a milky varnish. Only very few small spots of modern retouching fluoresce, all of which are finely applied and cosmetic. The painting may benefit from a clean and a freshened varnish, but otherwise can hang as is. Offered unframed.
