Still-life with shellfish, fish, lemons and goldfish in a bowl


indistinctly signed and dated Luc. Schaefels 1867 lower right

oil on panel

Unframed: 67.5 by 51cm., 26½ by 20in.

Framed: 77 by 61.5cm., 30¼ by 24¼in.

The panel is flat and providing a stable support. There are raised spots to the paint surface, which may relate to drying craquelure. There is an uneven and distracting layer of varnish. There is some rubbing to the extreme left, lower and right framing edges with some associated paint loss notably along the lower edge. There is a small loss to the panel in the lower left corner. There are some areas of paint separation. Examination under ultra violet light reveals no obvious signs of retouching, however a heavy, opaque layer of varnish obscures further reading.
