Description: oil on canvas
Oil on canvas. Canvas is not lined (a piece of protective cardboard sits behind the canvas and inside the stretcher). SURFACE: in generally good condition, although dirty; some abrasion at extreme edges with small spots of paint loss from frame rubbing; thick, uneven, old varnish; work is thinly painted in a few areas so that dark ground shows through (most evident in sky)--seems intentional. UNDER UV: A few dots of inpainting in the sky and a few areas of strengthening on the figures in the foreground.
