Description

THOMAS BUTTERSWORTH, SR.
United Kingdom, 1768-1842

Shipping off Eddystone Light. Signed lower right.
Oil on canvas, 18 x 24". Framed."

Condition

Overall excellent condition. Under white light the canvas appears stable with two minor areas of lifting from the old relining, and two other areas where the old canvas is separating; under UV examination there are three areas of restoration to the sky (right, middle & left) and an area to the lower left sea. The canvas would benefit from relining, a light cleaning and some fresh varnish.
