Condition Report

The overall impression is good. However, part of the shawl and sitter's chest has suffered a damage. This can only be seen on very close inspection. The damage does not appear to be a repaired tear but the surface has been disturbed and rubbed. The work has not been examined out of its frame. We are grateful to Neil Jeffares for his help when cataloguing this lot.
