Portrait of the Brewster Family (Margaret Fitch Brewster with Her Children, John Brewster and Elmina Sewall), 1917
Signed and dated M-JEAN McLANE 1917, (lr)
Oil on canvas laid to Masonite
59 x 48 inches (149.9 x 122 cm)
Frame rubbing. The canvas at the top center has pulled away from the masonite (3 inches long strip). There was some old damage in and around the head of the woman: few paint flakes, which have been inpainted; a few hairline lines of horizontal craquelure; there does appear to be inpainting to the right of her head. There appears to be an 8 x 8 x 8 inch area of inpainting in the lower left at edge in the background just above the woman's skirt. Unable to detect further restoration under UV light.
