Structural Condition: The canvas appears to be the original, as well as the stretcher. Additional support has been added to the stretcher along right-hand side. The canvas exhibits some light warping, most visible along the left and right hand framing edges and to the corners of the work. Very light crease visible upon close inspection running parallel to the framing edges, which fluoresces under UV light.
Paint Surface: Even layer of varnish. The colours are vibrant and strong. There are light networks of craquelure in places, particularly within the sitter's torso. Some very light brown surface marks/detritus in places, particularly along framing edge. Minor area of surface loss to sitter's bun/pony tail measuring approx. 2mm long
UV Light: A couple of possible areas of minor and precise retouching to the sitter's hair, with possible other instances elsewhere.
Summary: The work appears to be in good condition.
This work is framed.
