Nicolas and Olivier Descharnes have kindly confirmed the authenticity of this work.

Executed on cream wove board, not laid down, and hinged to the mount with two adhesive tabs at the upper edge. The lower and right edges are slightly deckled. There are some incredibly fine lines of craquelure in the thicker areas of impasto, however these are only visible upon very close inspection. There are some possible tiny flecks of loss in the extreme lower right corner. The sheet is in overall very good condition.
