Fanny Guillon-Laffaille has kindly confirmed that this work will be included in the second supplement of the Catalogue raisonné de l'oeuvre peint de Raoul Dufy currently in preparation.
This work is in very good condition. Canvas is not lined. Surface is attractive though it may benefit from a very light cleaning. There are a few small spots of minor pigment shrinkage at upper left corner. Under UV light there are a few strokes of inpainting around the extreme perimeter to address prior frame abrasion, otherwise fine.
