Oil on canvas 

Signed and dated 63

76 by 58 cm; 30 by 22¾ in.

There is evidence of light wear and discoloration along the edges of the work due to abrasions from a previous frame. There is some craquelure at the paint surface, but this is consistent with the age of the work. There are some pinhead sized and minor losses scattered across the surface of the work, but these are only visible upon close inspection. The original stretcher bar behind the canvas is causing some light protrusions to the canvas and associated cracks to the paint. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals areas of restoration at the edges of the work and at the background, with minor spots of restoration on the figure. Unframed, on a stretcher.
