Condition Report

Structural Condition

The painting which appears to have been cut into sections in the past is securely laid down onto a secondary board support. There is a slightly raised vertical join running through the centre left of the composition and there is a large rectangular insert in the upper right which would appear to have been added to square the work up when the composition was reinstated and laid down onto the secondary support. The work appears structural stable.


Paint Surface

The paint surface has an even varnish layer.

The paint surface appears entirely stable.

Inspection under ultraviolet light shows a rectangular area of retouching in the upper right which corresponds to the board insert mentioned above and a fine line of retouching corresponding to the join running vertically through the centre left of the composition.


Summary

The painting would therefore appear to be in good and stable condition and the rectangular insert and the associated retouching should be noted.
