La rue de l'Epicerie à Rouen, jour de marché


signed G. Loiseau (lower left)

oil on canvas

81.2 by 60.5cm., 32 by 23¾in.

Framed: 109.5 by 89cm., 43⅛ by 35in.

Painted circa 1929. 


This work will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné being prepared by Didier Imbert.

The canvas is not lined. There is an uneven varnish, however inspection under UV light reveals a possible small area of retouching to the centre of the right edge and some other small spots of pale fluoresence in places that relate to small cotton fibers that have adhered to the paint surface and varnish from a previous cleaning treatment. There are some fine lines of craquelure, slightly raised in places. There is some frame abrasion with some associated tiny losses to parts of the extreme edges. This work is in overall good condition.
