WILLIAM ASHFORDBirmingham 1746 - 1824 DublinVIEW OF KILLARNEY, WITH THE PASSAGE TO THE UPPER LAKE signed and indistinctly dated on the rock, l.c.: W.Ashford / 177...oil on canvas 96.5 by 126.2cm.; 38 by 49¾in.Condition ReportThe canvas has been recently relined. The paint surface is clean with a clear varnish. There is no need for further restoration or conservation. The surface of the paint is stable with no extant damages or loss of paint though there are some areas of thinness, predominantly in the darks. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals scattered retouching and infilling to craquelure throughout, notably in the rock on the right-hand side and in the sky lower centre. There is some strengthening in the sky centre left and also to the figure of the fisherman in the foreground. The picture is ready to hang in its current state. "
