oil on panel

panel: 13 1/4 by 18 in.; 33.6 by 45.8 cm.  

framed: 17 1/2 by 22 1/4 in.; 44.5 by 56.5 cm.  

The panel is stable and uncradled with a slight horizontal convex. The overall image reads well beneath an old, discolored, and slightly dirty varnish. Many of the details are still well-preserved, in particular in the foliage and the landscape. There are a few old stable, thin, and restored cracks to the panel surface, largely concentrated at the edges, including through the cow at lower left, beneath Eve's feet, in the lower right corner, near the center of the right edge, and a small one near the center of the upper edge. Inspection under UV reveals a thick and milky varnish. Retouches are visible to all of the aforementioned cracks, some of which have slightly discolored. Some additional scattered small retouches are concentrated near the right edge, and a few others here and there. Offered in a carved giltwood frame.
