oil on board
40.5 by 50.5cm., 16 by 20in.
The board is sligthly warped but appears sound overall. The varnish appears to have slightly discoloured and there is a small area of paint loss along the left side of the lower edge; otherwise the work appears in good overall condition.
Under ultraviolet light there is possibly a small line of retouching near the signature in the lower left corner.
Held in a simple silver gilt frame with a canvas inset.
