This large work has two restorations on the lower left edge. There are two visible vertical stretcher marks in the center of the work. These may have occurred at the time the work was painted, given the artist's brushy technique. One can see numerous small fluorescent dots under ultraviolet light. These are not retouching; they are probably specks of dust. The work should be hung in its current state. (This condition report has been provided courtesy of Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.) This work is unframed.
