signed and dated 1962 (lower left)

oil on canvas

25.5 by 20.7cm., 10 by 8in.

Framed: 30 by 24cm., 11¾ by 9½in.

Structure: The canvas appears original and unlined. The work is stretched and framed. Please note, the work is slightly loose in its frame and would benefit from being re-framed.


Surface: There appear to be light removable accretions in places on the surface of the work, only visible on very close inspection.

There is a light vertical line running through the length of the canvas (on the left-hand side), where the work rests on its stretcher, visible on very close inspection.


UV Report: Inspection under UV light reveals areas of possible minor retouching, for example, along the left-hand framing edge, in front of the sitter's face and a handful of other areas.


The work is in good condition.
