canvas: 26 by 32 ¾ in.; 66 by 83.2 cm.  

The canvas has been recently relined. The overall image reads somewhat clearly and in some passages the paint layer is still well preserved (ie: the yellow of her blouse). The surface is dirty, and there are some scattered losses, abrasions, and stabilized tears throughout. Inspection under UV reveals an uneven varnish, and only a few spots of more recent retouching fluoresce, for example in the shadow of her forehead and a few thin strokes here and there. Offered unframed.
