Condition

The canvas is unlined and slightly slack. The paint surface is in good condition. There are some scattered areas of paint loss across the work that reveal the bright blue ground, mainly on the left side. There is also a loss in the vase. The impasto remains remarkably fresh. Under UV there appear to be no signs of inpainting.
