Nude academic sketch of a man holding a staff, en brunaille


oil on canvas

canvas: 17 3/4 by 13 1/4 in.; 45 by 33.7 cm.

framed: 21 5/8 by 15 3/4 in.; 54.9 by 40 cm.

The canvas is lined and taut on its stretcher, with a small gap between the stretcher and frame along the top edge. The image reads relatively well, considering the color palette and method. Scattered spots of retouching throughout the dark background have discolored slightly and are visible to the naked eye. Under UV inspection, these small spots fluoresce, with minimal spots visible on the male figure. These appear to be applied over an earlier layer of varnish as they do not address any of the figure's modeling. Offered in a simply carved wooden frame.
