Follower of Gerard ter Borch the Younger
(Dutch, 1617-1681)

"Portrait of a Gentleman Standing in an Interior"

oil on oak panel
22-1/4" x 18", framed 30-3/4" x 26-1/2"

Provenance: Collection of Grace Nichols Whitney Hoff; thence by descent.

Notes: This work repeats a composition by Gerard ter Borch in the National Gallery of Art, London.


There is a shrinkage crack that runs the vertical length of the board, and exhibits adhesive residue en verso from an attempted previous repair. There is a small loss/flake to the upper right edge, and some minute abrading along the left edge. There is a light scratch with a small loss to the left sleeve. Some fine craquelure, mild toning/darkening of the varnish layer and surface soiling are scattered throughout. No inpainting was detected; however, previous campaigns of revarnishing make it difficult for UV light to fully penetrate the surface.
