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, simonparkes@msn.com, an independent restorer who is not an employee of Sotheby's. This work has been well lined. Although it has probably not been recently cleaned, it seems to be more or less clean. If the varnish were freshened slightly, the painting could be hung in its current state. There are a few retouches to some cracks in the darker colors, but there is no abrasion to speak of. Although the retouches lack discipline, they are serviceable. The work is in good condition.
