This work has been restored. The canvas has been lined. The stretcher is original. The paint layer is clean, retouched and varnished. Under ultraviolet light, it can be seen that numerous retouches have been very accurately and diligently applied to some cracking in the dark colors of the background. There are no retouches in the sky, and most of the light roses show no retouches. The work should be hung as is.
In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report.
