Please note, Condition 11 of the Conditions of Business for Buyers (Online Only) is no applicable to this lot
The canvas is not lined. Inspection under UV light reveals several scattered small spots and fine lines of retouching. There is a patch on the reverse above the figure's left shoulder which probably relates to a historic repaired tear and which corresponds to one of the areas of retouching. There is some extremely minor paint shrinkage, a few fine lines of craquelure in places and some scattered fly spots. This work is in overall good condition.
