Old oil painting on canvas signed Modigliani
I consider this painting, perhaps the most interesting piece in my grandfather’s collection. Below I will try to list an accurate description. Recently the color has been made to move from the collar because it visibly changed its original shape. The painting was kept in a warehouse. The moment I brought the painting into the house, certainly due to the change in temperature the canvas suffered a lot of tension. The tension created a rip on the left side of the canvas. He tore the canvas from the nails, for a portion of the left side and the upper side. I had thought of having the canvas restored, but a Belgian person advised me to leave the painting in an original way, as much as possible because for a possible analysis, the experts prefer the painting in the original version as much as possible. An important restoration of mediocre workmanship is visible on the right side of the painting, because the color has a different shade. There are small white dots, but I do not know the nature and history of these white dots. It is specified that it is a painting to be restored. From my own research on the stamp of the canvas I discovered that the French company with that wording produced canvases until around 1914. I recommend it because it has the possibility of having this painting analyzed by an expert, also doing a scientific research of colors and materials. I consider this piece of a certain importance then I decided to set a reserve price. The measurements are: 50.5 cm x 61. For other questions you can contact me.
