We are grateful to The Dorothea Tanning Foundation for their assistance in cataloguing this work.

The canvas is not lined; the edges are taped. UV inspection reveals two small (approx. 1cm-long) fine lines of retouching to the upper left corner. There are a few small accretions to the left side of the painting, which fluoresce under UV light. This work is in overall very good condition.
