A stable, hairline crack in the pigment is evident in the lower right edge and a very minor scuff is evident at the top right edge. Unframed.

Catalogue Note

"Cultivating a rather spontaneous-looking technique, Peyton combines a loosely brushed treatment of clothing and background with more delicately rendered and distinct faces, so that the likenesses distilled from photographs are immediately recognizable."
