Orientalist Scene with Two Men on Horseback
oil on wood
initialed E. F. l.l.
20 x 24.25 in. (sight)
There is a horizontal line of in-painting visible under UV light, about 6.5 in. long, located in the center left portion of the painting. The in-painting appears to be a repair for a crack, which is still visible, even without the UV light, and extends for about 8.25 in. The crack is also visible on the reverse of the wood panel, and is filled and surrounded by some glue residue, which confirms that it was repaired. The back of the panel is reinforced by several horizontal and vertical slats. Finally, the surface of the painting has a thin layer of grime, nothing heavy, but it could probably use a light cleaning.
