The canvas has been lined. There is some minor, hairline craquelure throughout, however not distracting to the naked eye. Inspection under ultra-violet light reveals a circa 10 by 20cm reversed L-shaped stroke of retouching in the background in the lower right quadrant, addressing a repair. A few other pin-head sized spots of cosmetic retouching are also visible. Overall, this work presents very well and is in good condition. This work is ready to hang.


Presented in a decorative gold frame.
