30 x 20 inches
Property of Various Owners
This painting has never been restored or damaged. It is still stretched on its original stretcher. The paint layer may be very slightly dirty, but except for a very thin crack and tiny amount of paint loss in the upper center (about 1/8 inch from the top edge) there are no issues. Johnson has used a transparent glaze to tone various parts of the work and this glaze has not been evenly received by the under-painting in many areas. Thus one sees slight beading of this glaze in the male figure on the far right and in a few other areas throughout the group. All of this is original and has been noted in other works by Johnson from this period. -Simon Parkes, May 2012
