The following condition report is provided by Henry Gentle who is an external specialist and not an employee of Sotheby's:

Saint Jerome in the wilderness

oil on oak panel


The oak panel is stable and is slightly convex, has a central horizontal join and evidence of historic wood worm damage. The panel edges have been thinned to the reverse, all round.

 

The paint layer is stable and secure.

 

Under u-v light, minimal spots of restoration can be detected in the sky to the left and right of the thin vertical tree. Minor strengthening of the sky in the top left corner can be seen. Retouching out of minor loss along the horizontal join is evident.

 

Overall, the painting is in a very good original preserved condition.

 

Paint texture though the composition is intact and strong chromatic values are well preserved.

 

One or two of the more vulnerable passages, the edges of the leaves, thinly applied trees to the central rocky outcrop and the boats in the centre, have been slightly compromised.

 

The fine details to St.Jerome, the foreground foliage, the port and atmospheric perspective through the composition are very well preserved.


A tonal improvement would be gained by removal of the varnish.
