This work will be included in the forthcoming Renoir Digital Catalogue Raisonné, currently being prepared under the sponsorship of the Wildenstein Plattner Institute, Inc.

The canvas has been lined and is very slightly buckled at center. The edges have been taped. The impasto has been well preserved particularly within the cream-colored pigments that highlight each rose. Under UV light no inpainting is apparent, though archival research by the Wildenstein Plattner Institute confirms that the darker background at top right (filling the upper-right-most two inch by two inch diagonal corner) as well as the initial R were amended by another hand. The work is in otherwise very good condition and presents well in its current state.
