In very fine condition, commensurate with the artist's technique and multi-medium use. Old pinholes in each of the four corners, now hinged at the top corners with Japanese paper in a float frame. Quater-inch tear from top-right center canvas edge. Minor vertical craquelure throughout. One of the top proper left leaves with slight flaking. Small loss near her bodice, proper right of pendant. Slight tear of the canvas due to the weight of the pendant.
