A village street scene with children playing in the foreground and figures drinking


outside an inn

oil on oak panel

unframed: 72.1 x 120.5 cm.; 28⅜ x 47⅜ in.

framed: 95.9 x 144.5 cm.; 37¾ x 56⅞ in.

The panel is cradled, the paint surface is dirty and the varnish is discoloured. Two horizontal splits, which meet in the centre of the panel, run from each lateral margin, just below centre. A further horizontal split is visible closer to the upper margin, which does not extend to either side. Inspection under ultraviolet light is impeded by the milky varnish, but small discoloured retouchings are visible in the centre of the foreground, on the lower margin, and along the aforementioned splits. Otherwise there are a handful of small, discoloured retouchings scattered in the sky, and the varnish appears quite uneven. The painting is in overall fairly good condition.
