Both canvases appear to be thinly lined and are stable on their stretchers. One of the two canvases has a slight undulation to its surface. Both painted images read clearly beneath an old and discolored varnish. The surface is somewhat dirty. Under UV: there are a few small and isolated retouched repairs in both works, and otherwise, there are scattered fine spots of retouching throughout both canvases. These are well applied and appear to be largely cosmetic. Both paintings are offered in gilt wood frames with a green decorative band.
