David De Noter (Belgian, 1818-1892)
A Kitchen Still Life
Signed and dated "David de Noter '58" l.r.
Oil on panel, 12 1/4 x 9 1/2 in. (31.1 x 24.1 cm),framed.
Condition: Minor retouch along bottom edge.
The painting is well preserved and framed under glass. UV examination shows minor retouch along the bottom edge, probably to repair frame abrasion. Minor frame abrasion at top edge, and a very minor loss to panel at l.l. corner. The painting has been finished with a high gloss varnish with areas of slightly uneven application, evident in raking light when the painting is out of its frame. Panel appears to be mahogany, with beveled edges on the reverse.
