Basile de Loose (Belgian, 1809-1885)
A Captive Audience
Signed "B. De Loose" l.l.
Oil on canvas, 32 x 23 in. (81.3 x 58.4 cm), in a carved wooden frame.
Condition: Lined, retouch, signature possibly retouched.
The lining is new and is either glue or resin. It was perhaps lined because of the horizontal tear, about 7 inches long through the draperies and background. This has been retouched, and there are additional areas of concentrated dots and dashes of retouch. The craquelure is fine and stable. The signature has been retouched or reinforced.
