Conservation Notes

The support is a plain-weave, medium-weight, commercially-prepared fabric. It is unlined and attached to its original four-member mortise-and-tenon stretcher. A paper label on the stretcher from F. Weber and Co. gives the address of the company and identifies the stretcher as size X. The paint was fluidly applied over the white ground. The varnish has become only slightly discolored.
