Le Pont des Soupirs


signed Le Sidaner (lower left)

oil on panel

32 by 26cm., 12⅝ by 10¼in.

Framed: 44.7 by 39.4cm., 17⅝ by 15½in.

Painted in Venice in April 1914. 


The authenticity of this work has kindly been confirmed by Yann Farinaux-Le Sidaner.

The panel is sound. Inspection under UV light reveals a milky varnish through which UV light cannot fully penetrate but through which there appear to be no obvious signs of retouching. There is a loss to the upper left corner, inherent to the panel. There are tiny losses and nicks to the edges of the panel with some minor associated spots of pigment loss. There are fine lines of craquelure and paint shrinkage to the composition. There is historic frame abrasion to all four edges possibly from framing the picture whilst the paint was still wet. This work is in overall good condition.
