We thank Ryon Carey for his assistance in the research and cataloguing of this lot.
The canvas is unlined and there is frame abrasion along the extreme edges with some associated remnants of gilt. There is a small indentation in the lower left from the reverse and fine surface cracking throughout. The work appears slightly dirty. Under UV: although some pigments read strongly, they appear to be the artist's original work.
