The following condition report has been provided by Simon Parkes of Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc. 502 East 74th St. New York, NY 212-734-3920, firstname.lastname@example.org, an independent restorer who is not an employee of Sotheby's.
This work on canvas is unlined and seems to be in beautiful state. There are a few small losses in the girls dress in the lower center and a small amount of retouching above the rose on the rug. However, the work is generally in very good condition. Some consolidation within the dress and a small amount of retouching is all that is required to properly present the picture.
