Circle of Frans van Mieris the Elder
(Dutch, 1635-1681)

"The Shrimp Seller"

oil on cradled wood panel
unsigned, remnants of a red seal en verso, typewritten label with artist name en verso, with "A Galeria Vendome, S. Paulo" label.
13" x 11", framed 17-3/4" x 15-1/2"

Provenance: Estate of Marianne Hochuli, Houston, Texas.


There is a vertical shrinkage crack that extends the length of the painting; board also exhibits some minor warping (largely due to the shrinkage crack). Fine craquelure and surface soiling are present throughout. There is a small loss/accretion to the upper right corner. While no inpainting was detected, it is too difficult to ascertain with certainty, because the multiple layers of varnish make it difficult for the UV light to penetrate. In overall good condition. Condition is as to be expected with age and medium.
