The canvas has not been lined.
There is a fine pattern of hairline craquelure throughout. However, this is not too distracting.
Inspection under ultra-violet light reveals an even layer of varnish which has somewhat yellowed in time and some minor, small spots of cosmetic retouching in the floor in the lower right corner and in the woman's dress.
Overall, this work is in good condition and is ready to hang.
Presented in a decorative gilt frame.
