Condition Report

The canvas is not lined. The impasto is well preserved and the colors are bright. There is pigment shrinkage throughout the canvas, most notably in the blue background and orange of the table, consistent with other works in the artist's oeuvre. There is a minor loss to the center of the left edge. Under UV light: some original pigments fluoresce but no inpainting is apparent. This work is in good condition.
