Condition Report

This work is in good overall condition as viewed. Evidence of creasing and minor bubbling to the surface due to slight dampening of the cardboard backing, however the silk can be remounted by a professional framer or restorer. The artist's English signature is slightly smudged, however, this is inherent to the artist's working method. Evidence of minor wear at the two areas at the upper right corner and lower left edge. Upon very close inspection and under scope, there is a spot of foxing near the proper right hand of the lady in green and under the neck of the lady in orange dress. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals minor retouching under the fence at the upper right quadrant, and to the gold frame border at the upper and lower left corner edges of the work. Framed, under plexiglass.


Framed Dimensions: 108 by 106.5 cm
