We would like to thank Véronique Nora-Milin for confirming the authenticity of this lot.
Original unlined condition. The work presents well. There is a pin dot loss in the lower left corner and extremely faint craquelure in the darker area at lower left. Under UV: thick varnish fluoresces green. There are a few pin dot retouches above the figure's proper left eyebrow; a small area of dashed inpainting with some sparse surrounding dashes of inpainting in the background at upper right; and old horizontal fluorescence in the background at upper left.
