The New Boat


signed in Cyrillic l.l.; further inscribed, titled and dated 1963 on the stretcher, bearing a Soviet export label on the reverse and a Gekkoso Gallery label on the backing board

oil on canvas

Canvas: 60 by 91cm, 23 ¾ by 36 in.

Framed: 86 by 117.5cm, 34 by 46 ¼ in.

Original canvas. The stretcher has been extended with a strip of wood along the right bar which is protruding slightly. This has resulted in some minor paint loss. There is craquelure to the grass in the foreground, which is lifting and flaking in places, most notably around the feet of the figures on the right. Further isolated areas of craquelure can be seen elsewhere, most notably in the sky. There are two small pinholes, one in the top right corner, the other to the top of the left edge. The surface is covered in an uneven varnish layer. There are frame abrasions with associated paint loss along the edges. Inspection under UV light reveals no obvious signs of retouching. Framed and held behind plexiglass.
