Condition

The canvas is lined. UV examination reveals retouchings along all four edges. There are some further small areas of fluorescence which could relate to the uneven varnish. There are lines of craquelure throughout, with paint losses and paint lifting in places, predominantly to the upper left corner; these could be consolidated. This work is in overall fair condition.
