Condition Report

The following condition report was kindly provided by Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.: This work has an old lining which is nicely supporting the paint layer. The paint layer seems to be clean. There are no structural damages. There does not appear to be any retouching, abrasion or weakness of any note. It does not seem that the work will respond to cleaning, and it is recommended that it be hung in its current state.
