This work is registered in the Archives Durand-Ruel under photo no. 10266. This work will be included in the forthcoming Catalogue raisonné being prepared by Flavie Durand-Ruel, Alain Girard and Béatrice Roche.

The canvas is not lined. Inspection under UV light reveals a horizontal and vertical line of retouching to the brown area (approx. 7cm and 2cm each) to the centre of the lower right quadrant. There is some frame abrasion along all four extreme edges. There are a few fine lines of craquelure in places only visible upon very close inspection. There is a tiny paint loss to the pink flower towards the centre of the right edge. This work is in overall good condition.
