After Raphael (Italian, 1483-1520)
Copy of The Bridgewater Madonna
Oil on canvas, 34 x 25 in. (86.0 x 63.7 cm), in a carved Florentine-style frame.
Condition: Lined, minor retouch, fine craquelure, heavily varnished.
Frame dimensions 37 x 45 inches.
The work shows old craquelure and has a heavy coat of shiny varnish. There is some minor rippling/bubbling along the right edge close to the frame which is probably imperfections in the lining process. Retouch is extremely minor under UV with most all of the fluorescence resulting from the varnish layer.
