Antique Dutch Theme Damaged Oil Painting Unsigned 1885 ADS Stretcher Corners There are 67 photos of the item below. — The photos load incrementally below depending on your connection, please allow a few seconds for the photos to appear — Measures 18″ x 25″ on an approx 7/8 deep stretcher with A. No signature or names or writing that I can see. Oil on either linen or canvas. There are a number of punctures/tears and deep stretch indents/impressions into the canvas. The most serious see lower right corner area. The canvas folded back around those punctures, from what I can see there are no missing pieces of any size. There are some other puncture tears, see above the two figures, there are two small ones, upper right area has a small one (in the sky) and another on the right in the water area. There are also some near tears/puncture indents as well as indents from the back. The good thing is the damaged areas are not in the main subjects. It took me a bit to find or see who the two women were waving and calling to, off to the right on the shore of a small island is a faint boat and faint ghostly little figure around which the background is lighter. I don’t know if that was intentional or if the painter wasn’t happy or couldn’t resolve that area. You can see obvious yellowing to some either glazes or pigments or both. The entire surface looks lilke it has a glossy finish varnish. I took a lot of photos to help you see the surface of the painting, it’s possible that what I take for a finish varnish is just glazing. If you are a painter, the restoration work is within the realm of possiblity, closing the holes and tears from the back by applying a backing material then restoring the areas from the front. You can also see a lot of edge chipping, leaving the bare canvas ground. I show the edges around the stretcher in the photos. — See photos for condition details. — I don’t have a way to arrange for a local pick-up of this item, I’m sorry for the inconvenience.
