Pierre Bonnard Femme à la lampe or La Lampe verte...

[ translate ]

Property of a Gentleman
Pierre Bonnard
1867 - 1947

Femme à la lampe or La Lampe verte or La Couseuse
signed Bonnard (lower left)
oil on paper, mounted on canvas
45.7 by 60.9 cm. 18 by 24 in.
Framed: 73 by 87.6 cm. 28 ¾ by 34 ½ in.
Executed in 1912.

Condition Report:
Executed on paper, mounted on canvas, the edges are taped. Inspection under UV light reveals a very thick and milky varnish, through which UV light cannot fully penetrate, but does reveal several spots and lines of retouching largely towards the edges and to the chair in the right of the composition. There are losses to the upper right and lower left corners with associated inpainting and some restoration to the lower right corner and the centre of the lower edge. There are several further losses to the composition, some of which have been infilled and most of which are towards the chair. There are flattened creases and very fine lines of craquelure to the composition, the latter of which is only visible upon very close inspection. This work is in overall good condition.
