JEUNE FILLE NUE DEBOUT
Signed H Lebasque (lower right)
Oil on canvas
21¾ by 15⅛ in. (55.2 by 38.4 cm)
Framed: 27¾ by 21 in. (70.4 by 53.3 cm)
The canvas has not been lined. The picture surface is in generally good condition aside from an unevenly applied varnish. Under UV light: there are areas of inpainting visible in the lower corners and along the upper edge. There is a small spot of inpainting in the figure's left thigh and below her left breast. Some pigments appear to fluoresce due to application either over varnish, especially the contours of the figure's lower legs, or in unvarnished areas, as seen in the background above and to the left of the figure's head.
