oil on panel

panel: 28 1/8 by 24 5/8 in.; 71.5 by 62.5 cm.

framed: 36 1/4 by 32 3/4 in.; 92 by 83.2 cm. 

The panel consists of 3 vertical planks and is flat, stable, and cradled on the reverse. The still life image reads very well beneath a clear, shiny varnish, with individual touches of light on each surface. Thin vertical lines corresponding to the panel joins are faintly visible on either side of center but are stable and not distracting. No restoration is visible to the naked eye. Under UV inspection, retouching along both panel joins is visible, as well as smaller scattered retouches throughout, with larger areas of retouching in the bottom of the black tablecloth. The painting has been well restored and can hang in its present state. Offered in a simply carved ebonized wood frame.
