Landscape with farmers, cattle and sheep before a river


signed and dated lower right: A Vermeulen / 1782

oil on panel

panel: 10 by 14 ½ in.; 25.4 by 36.8 cm.

framed: 14 ¼ by 18 in.; 36.2 by 45.7 cm.

The panel consists of a single plank that is flat, stable, and beveled on the left and right edges of the reverse. The bottom edge of the panel is separated slightly from the frame but it is secure. The image reads very well beneath yellowed varnish, with impasto retained, signature visible, and detailed foliage. A small abrasion or accretion is visible in the extreme lower right corner, but no other retouching or repairs are visible to the naked eye. Under UV inspection, the varnish appears streaky in the bottom half of the composition, and in the top half, small scattered dots of retouching are visible in the sky, with one coin-sized spot at center. Overall the painting is in excellent condition, and would improve even more with a fresh varnish. Offered in a decoratively carved giltwood frame.
