38⅛ by 25½ in.
96.8 by 64.8 cm
Wax lined. Surface dirt and dust with a few dots and pin dots of accretion. There are a few isolated pin dot dents and tiny losses in the background and near the floor area. Some scattered craquelure. Under UV: heavy varnish fluoresces green unevenly; the work appears to have been selectively cleaned of this varnish, including the toy dog and the girl. Small areas of inpainting fluoresce in the upper background and at lower left. Areas of fluorescence on the proper right side of the girl’s skirt and the proper right side of the toy dog, possibly inherent. Ready to hang in its current state.
