Condition

Canvas is not lined. The surface is slightly dirty, and the canvas undulates slightly at the lower left corner. Under UV light: a thick masking varnish is difficult to read through. Strokes of inpainting are visible around the perimeter, probably to address prior frame abrasion. These spots are apparent at the upper right corner, at the center of the right edge, at the bottom edge, and at the bottom of the left edge. In addition, an older generation of retouches, probably to address cracking towards the lower right corner. Otherwise, areas of uneven varnish fluoresce, but no significant inpainting is apparent. Overall the work is in generally good condition.
