Original canvas on what appears to be the original stretcher. The canvas is rippling slightly over the top and right hand stretcher bars. Scattered fine craquelure is visible in places, notably in the sitter's sleeve. There are scattered spots of retouching at the centre of the left edge which are visible to the naked eye. There is a light layer of surface dirt. Inspection under UV light reveals scattered retouching to the edges and lower left corner; minor spots in her cheek, throat and below her chin as well as her hair and sleeve; and the aforementioned area at the centre of the left edge. The varnish layer has discoloured over time. Framed.
