"Figures Fishing on the Yare River"

oil on wood panel
15-3/4" x 23-1/4", framed 26-1/2" x 33"


In overall very good, professionally restored condition. Under UV light, there is a shrinkage crack repair with corresponding inpainting that runs the horizontal length of the board, ~6" from the top. Top and right edges exhibit inpainting and there are small scattered areas of inpainting to the foreground. Inconsistencies in varnish layers make it difficult for the UV light to penetrate the foreground surface. There is some minor abrading at edges of board due to friction from frame. Fine craquelure is present throughout.
