French/Russian school (late 19th century) THE ESCORTS
oil on canvas, framed, signed: lower right, illegibly
H33 1/4" W23 5/8"

Provenance: Property deaccessioned from the Centennial Museum at the University of Texas at El Paso to benefit the Museum Collections Fund. (Accession #78.33.133)

  • Canvas has been relined; line of repaired crazing stretching horizontally from the tips of the tallest palm-leaf at left towards the lamp-post and vertically from the lead down towards the hat of the women in blue dress; UV light examination reveals spots of inpainting and overpainting: to tile above red carpet on left, on parasol of woman dressed in blue, to man's lip, his collar, and small spots throughout his coat and to the area surrounding the folded portion of the skirt on the woman in white. These restorations are not visible to the naked eye and the painting remains visibly appealing.

    All restorations were done prior to donation to the museum in the 1960s.
