condition

The following condition report has been provided by Hamish Denwar Fine Art Conservation, 13 & 14 Mason's Yard, Duke Street, St Jame's, London, England, SW1Y 6BU, +44 (0) 20 7930 4004, hamish@hamishdewar.co.uk, an independent restorer who is not an employee of Sotheby's.The canvas been lined and this is ensuring an even and secure structural support. The paint surface has a reasonably even varnish layer. There is an overall pattern within the paint layers which reveals the darker ground layers which is most evident in the flesh tones. The ground layers are also evident throughout the background suggesting that there may have been some abrasion due to over-cleaning in the past. Many of the fine details do, however, appear to be well preserved. Inspection under ultraviolet light shows what appear to be different stages of retouching and it is difficult to be certain as to the extent of retouching applied in the past. A few small scattered retouchings are clearly visible under ultraviolet light, including a vertical line running down from the background into the pale headscarf of the woman on the right of the composition. There are also a number of retouchings on her draperies and a number of very small scattered spots and lines between her and the male figure on the extreme right of the composition. There are also a number of retouchings on the armor of the man in the center of the composition and a number of thin lines and small spots on his hair and face. There is an area that faintly fluoresces between this figure and the lute player on the left of the composition, which could be a repaired tear. There are other scattered retouchings, which are visible under ultraviolet light and there may well be other retouchings beneath old opaque varnish layers which are not easily identifiable under ultraviolet light. The painting would therefore appear to be in essentially good and stable condition and no further work is required. "This lot is offered for sale subject to Sotheby's Conditions of Business, which are available on request and printed in Sotheby's sale catalogues.
