Condition

The canvas is not lined. There do not appear to be any signs of retouching visible under UV light. There is some frame abrasion in places along the extreme edges, including two spots of pigment loss to the tips of the upper right and left corners. There are a few lines of craquelure along the upper and lower edges. Otherwise this work appears to be in very good original condition.
