Condition Report

The following condition report has been provided by Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc., New York, an independent restorer who is not an employee of Sotheby's:

This work is in good condition.

It has developed mild thin cracks across the top edge and across the bottom edge, not unusual for plywood.

The cracks have not been retouched, except in the left shoulder of the figure, and will remain stable.

The paint layer is clean and lightly varnished.

There are a few retouches in tiny spots around the edges, in the left elbow of the figure and in 5 small spots in the left background.

Pene du Bois' original color reads quite strongly in the hat and in the diagonal green line across the lower part of the picture, but this is all original pigment. The work should be hung as is.
