Condition

The canvas is lined and UV examination reveals an area of old retouching to the sky in the upper right quadrant. There are two small areas of paint loss to the bridge and a spot of paint loss to the lower left corner as well as a few further tiny flecks of paint loss in places. These losses appear to be due to a historic adhesion of the paint which has been resolved by relining the canvas. This work is in overall fairly good condition.
