The canvas is lined. There is a milky varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating, however examination under UV light appears to reveal some spots and lines of retouching to the lower left quadrant, along all extreme edges and towards the centre of the left edge. There is a further spot of retouching to the upper part of the artist's palette, probably related to repaired tear. Close inspection reveals a few scattered tiny dots of paint losses, as well as a small nick to the artist's palette. There is some frame rubbing along the extreme edges. This work is in fairly good condition. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
