Previous restoration is visible in the following areas: in-between the collar and necklace and to the either side of the sitter's hair. Under UV inspection, the varnish fluoresces unevenly and additional signs of restoration can be seen. The left-hand side of the face has been retouched as well as different parts of the lace in the collar and red ribbon in the hair. Painting can be hung in its current state. Offered in an ebonized and carved frame.
