Item Details
Description
Continental School, "Portrait of a Young Man," 18th c., oil on canvas, unsigned, unframed, H.- 25 in., W.- 22 1/4 in.
Condition
Condition is consistent with age. The painting is in need of a very good conservator. The original canvas was cut down at some point and was relined, most likely in the 19th century. Since then, the glue holding the two canvases together has begun crackling around frame and in the middle. There are 6 large visible cracks in canvas, possibly from the painting being folded at one point. There is an area of in-painting visible under black light, just below chin of figure. It’s possible that the original canvas had a tear in this area. Also, when looking at the painting under black light, it looks like the varnish was cleaned off of figure, possibly for the original repairs. There are areas of canvas detachment around stretcher, view photos for reference. Despite its need for conservation, this is a handsome painting. ________________________________________________________________________________ ALL PROPERTY IS SOLD "AS IS."
