Description:

Jean Alphonse Roehn (French, 1799-1864)

A Modern Judgment of Paris
Signed and dated "Alp. Roehn/fec 1857" c.l.
Oil on canvas, 25 3/4 x 21 1/2 in. (65.3 x 54.5 cm), framed.
Condition: Lined, scattered retouch, surface abrasions l.c., craquelure.
Estimate $1,200-1,800

Wax lined onto a rigid support. Several surface abrasions, the most noticeable located lower center measuring 4 inches across, and extending down 3 inches on one side and 2 inches onthe other.. It appears that the abrasions are mainly to the varnish layer, but this would need to be evaluated by a conservator. Stable craquelure overall.
