Lot 1166: JOHN WARD OF HULL | A Dutch Buss on the Humber
26 October 2016
London, United KingdomLive Auction
Description: oil on panel
The small single panel is uncradled and flat. The paint surface is relatively clean and the varnish is clear and even. Inspection under ultraviolet reveals extremely little intervention, save for minor retouching in the upper right corner, and perhaps a line of sensitively-executed strengthening to the mast of the principle ship. In overall very good condition.
