Condition Report

The canvas has not been lined and is securely attached to a keyed wooden stretcher.

There are some scattered lines of craquelure, notably visible in the white pigments in the centre of the composition. Inspection under ultra-violet light reveals an even layer of residual varnish and a small area of fluorescence in the head of the woman in the white blouse, and isolated, small strokes along the upper part of the left framing edge. Otherwise, this work is in good condition and is ready to hang.
