oil on canvas

canvas: 34 5/8 by 28 1/2 in.; 87.9 by 72.4 cm. 

frame: 46 1/2 by 41 in.; 118.1 by 104.1 cm. 

The canvas is lined and is stable on its stretcher. The overall image reads well beneath the varnish, and there are no instabilities visible to the painted surface. There is a small scuff to the varnish at lower right. There are some areas of thinness, such as in the shadows of his neck and the back of his head, as well as in the costume near the lower edge. A very faint pattern of craquelure is visible, most noticeably at his chest and in his face. Inspection under UV reveals a somewhat milky varnish as well as some scattered retouching here and there that is largely cosmetic in nature. There appears to be a small restored repair in his lower beard as well as a small spot in the center of his shoulder at right. Some finely applied and scattered strokes are visible in his costume, neck, beard, and face, primarily in his brow, nose, and undereye areas. Some more loosely applied strokes of strengthening are visible in the shadows of his costume, as well as some areas scattered here and there in the upper background. Offered in a giltwood frame with a decoratively carved outer liner and a fabric inner liner.
