Le Cannet, grand nu (Marinette)


signed Lebasque (lower right); signed H.L on the reverse

oil on canvas

73.3 by 92.2cm., 28¾ by 36¼in.

Framed: 93 by 101.5cm., 36½ by 44in.

Painted in 1934. 

The canvas is not lined. Inspection under UV light reveals a few pin-sized spots of retouching to parts of the edges, and one to the pink wall just above the pile of blankets. There are several pin-sized holes to the edges of the canvas, and one to the centre of the lower right quadrant. There are a few tiny paint losses in places, most noticeably to the figure's left knee. There are some fine lines of craquelure in places and a few scattered fly spots. This work is in overall very good condition.
