Condition: This work is in good condition. The stretcher has pushed against the canvas very lightly so there is very minor stretcher marks only visible upon close inspection. There is very light discoloration of the varnish so the painting can benefit from a light clean and restretching. There is very small spot of restoration to the upper left only visible under the UV light or upon very close inspection. There also minor water drip marks on the reverse of the work.
Colour: The catalogue illustration is very accurate. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
