Samy Kinge has kindly confirmed the authenticity of this work.

The canvas is not lined and the edges are taped. Inspection under UV-light reveals a very small spot of possible retouching to the centre of the upper right quadrant. There are minor areas of retouching along the right and left extreme edges and the upper right hand corner. There is some frame abrasion to parts of the extreme edges. There are a few tiny paint losses in places to the upper and lower right quadrants. There are some small accretions, most notably to the right of the figure's lips and to the centre of the left hand edge. This work is in overall very good condition.
