Portrait of a young girl with a dog


oil on canvas

canvas: 23 3/8 by 16 5/8 in.; 59.5 by 42 cm. 

framed: 34 3/4 by 28 in.; 88.1 by 71 cm. 

The canvas appears to be lined and is taut on its stretcher. The image reads well and the painted surface appears stable, with no visible areas of lifting or flaking. The surface is slightly dirty, but there are still some lovely passages throughout, including the ringlets in her hair and the white highlights of her costume. Some other areas have lost some definition with age. Inspection under UV reveals a thick varnish that impedes some inspection. A more recent area of retouching is visible in the lower right corner and in the upper left background. Scattered and finely applied retouching is visible here and there in the figure's costume and the dog, with a more concentrated network of spots in her face, all largely cosmetic to address some thinned areas. Some additional strokes of retouching are concentrated in the background and near the extreme edges. Offered in an elaborate frame, that is painted, shaped, and decoratively carved.
