inscribed on the stretcher: This painting fram'd and fix'd in the year 1828 December 18th T. KNOWLES GILDER / For Capt Tyler Linsted Lodge to the left at the George Inn Green Street

oil on canvas, unframed

212.2 x 333.5 cm.; 83½ x 131¼ in.

The canvas is lined, and the paint surface is slightly dirty with a relatively discoloured varnish. There are two vertical seams running the height of the canvas either side of centre which are visible under raking light. There is some minor frame abrasion along the left and upper margins and some small, scattered scuff marks throughout. There is visible discoloured retouching to scattered repaired tears and damages throughout - notably in the lower left section of the composition, the largest a 1 x 20cm. band of horizontal retouching along the centre of the left margin. Inspection under ultraviolet light confirms these, and reveals some further scattered patches of retouching (none larger than 10 x 10cm.) and some small, fine lines of retouching surrounding these areas. There is more concentrated retouching along the lower quarter of the right margin. The painting presents well for a canvas of this size and would benefit from light cleaning and restoration.
