oil on canvas
Canvas: 145 by 151cm, 57 by 59 ½ in.
Framed: 149 by 155.5cm, 58 ¾ by 61 ¼ in.
The canvas has been strip-lined. There are deep cracks to the paint layer throughout, some of which are raised but appear stable at present. There is a layer of surface dirt and the varnish has discoloured. There is a faint surface scratch running across the pigs in the lower right. Scuff marks and further scratches are visible in places. Inspection under UV light reveals an area of retouching to the sky above the building on the right, retouching to the sky elsewhere, an area above the signature, to the bucket, as well as retouching elsewhere. A thick and discoloured varnish layer prevents a more thorough analysis. Framed.
