signed and dated P VD OUDERAA 1894 lower right

oil on canvas

Unframed: 74 by 48.3cm., 29 by 19in.

Framed: 95 by 68.5cm., 37½ by 27in.

The canvas has not been lined and is providing a strong and stable support to the paint surface. The work is in good condition, ready to hang. In raking light there is some faint craquelure, and a faint central, upper, left and right stretcher bar mark. Examination under ultra-violet light reveals retouching to the extreme upper framing edge. There also appears to be an uneven layer of varnish, fluorescing in places.
