oil on canvas

canvas: 9 ¼ by 11 ¾ in.; 23.5 by 29.8 cm.

framed: 14 by 17 ¼ in.; 35.6 by 43.8 cm.

The canvas is lined and stable on its stretcher, though the right edge of the canvas is not flush with the frame. The image reads well with bright colors retained. Under UV inspection, retouching is visible along the left edge to address frame abrasion, on the donkey and behind the angel, and in a few other small spots in the sky, the palm tree, and the shadows of the figures' garments. The painting can hang in its present condition. Offered in a decoratively carved giltwood frame with artist nameplate reading "J. Tassel, 1608 - 1667."
