Lined. Overall the surface is stable and fresh and the colors remain vibrant. Minor surface dirt and dust. There is a web of craquelure across the picture surface; with some very minor associated lifting at the top of the door frame at upper left. Frame abrasion at the upper and right edges. Under UV: a heavy varnish, of which the figure's face and hands have been cleaned, fluoresces green unevenly; this makes the picture surface difficult to read, though there is inpainting to address prior frame abrasion visible along the upper and right edges. The pink pigments remain active and fluoresce. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
