PORTRAIT OF AN ELEGANT LADY
signed Grün and dated 04 (lower right)
pastel on canvas
80½ by 38½ in.
204.5 by 97.8 cm
Pastel on canvas. The work presents well overall. The colors remain bright and the medium remains fresh. There are two tiny pin holes on the figure's collar with some discoloration. In the background and on the ground around the figure, there are a very few isolated, barely perceptible surface scratches and scuffs and tiny losses. Some areas of abrasion on the right hand side in the background. Some indentation from the frame visible in the lower left corner. Ready to hang in its current state.
