GIRL WITH A FLOWER
signed l.r.: D. O'Neill
oil on board
61 by 40.5cm., 24 by 16in.
Painted circa 1958-62.
The board appears sound. There are some spots of surface dirt and a small abrasion in the lower left corner; otherwise the work appears in good overall condition.
Ultraviolet light reveals an opaque varnish. Some areas fluoresce but these appear to be a result of the artist's pigment used.
Held in a wooden composite frame.
