oil on panel

panel: 20¼ by 16½ in.; 51.4 by 41.9 cm.

framed: 29 by 25¼ in.; 73.7 by 64.1 cm.

The panel consists of two planks joined vertically and is flat, stable, and cradled on the reverse. The image reads well beneath thick varnish, with some areas of retouching in the collar visibly discolored. 2 small chips/losses are visible in the left background but are not distracting. Under UV inspection, retouching is concentrated along the panel join just to the right of the woman’s face, a strip about 1.5 inches wide and running the height of the panel. A spot of retouching to the right of the join on the collar is also visible and a few dots on the left of the collar; all of these are slightly visible to the naked eye as lighter areas not covered by the older yellowing varnish. There is virtually no retouching in the face. The varnish could be evened out but otherwise the painting can hang in its present state. Offered in a carved ebonized wood frame with gilt inner liner.
