oil on copper, an oval

copper: 5 3/4 by 8 in.; 14.6 by 20.4 cm. 

framed: 12 1/4 by 14 in.; 31.1 by 35.6 cm.  

The copper plate is planar overall, with a very faint undulation to the surface that is barely discernible. The back of the copper has slightly oxidized. The overall painted image reads well beneath a clear and crisp varnish, and many of the details appear well-preserved. Inspection under UV reveals a thick and somewhat streaky varnish that impedes some inspection. More recent retouches are visible at the extreme edges of the copper, possibly to address old frame abrasion, and a few scattered cosmetic spots only here and there in the sky and in the lower foreground. There is possibly an older campaign of restoration to the sky beneath the thick varnish. The painting is ready to hang. Offered in a giltwood frame with decorative carving.
