This work is in very good condition overall. Under close inspection, there is minor evidence of handling and wear to the extreme edges including some very light soiling at the turning edges. Further close inspection reveals a few scattered pinpoint accretions visible particularly in the area of green paint proximate to the sitter’s ear. Further inspection of the area of green paint reveals a few minor and unobtrusive variations in canvas texture that are likely inherent to the weave of the support. Under ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Framed.
