Madonna and Child with a Bishop Saint


oil on panel, unframed

panel: 63 3/4 by 41 7/8 in.; 161.9 by 106.4 cm

The panel is thick and consists of 3 vertical planks supported on the reverse with a cradle consisting of 4 horizontal and 4 vertical bars. A smaller bar probably to address a crack at the bottom edge is also present. The panel joins are faintly visible to the naked eye on the recto but are not distracting. A thin horizontal scratch to the paint layer about 18 inches long runs one inch from the bottom edge. The image reads well beneath a thick, glossy varnish, with bold colors retained, and the paint layer is stable. Under UV inspection, scattered retouching is visible throughout, with concentrated areas along the left and right edges, likely to address frame abrasion, and vertically through the center of the panel along a join. There are some larger spots in the Virgin's garment, hand, and the saint's white garment, along with small fine strokes of retouching throughout the flesh tones of all figures along craquelure lines. Scattered spots of retouching are also visible in the sky and grass. Offered unframed.
