Tête de Jeune femme

L'authenticité de cette œuvre a été confirmée par le Comité Derain.

The work has been examined framed. The canvas is lined. There is a milky varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating, however examination under UV light appears to reveal dots and lines of retouching along the right and left edges and a spot of retouching in the figure’s neck. There are a few small lines of craquelure along the right and left edges. Surface is a bit dirty. This work is in overall good condition and could benefit from a light clean.
