oil on canvas

The canvas is lined, the paint surface is clean and the varnish is clear and even. The network of craquelure has become slightly more pronounced in the flesh tones and white dress of the girl. There is a vertical seam running the height of the canvas, just left of centre, with associated, discoloured retouching, and there are also small, scattered spots of retouching visible in the column and in the mother's black dress. Inspection under ultraviolet light confirms these, and further reveals some strengthening in the left of the lady's hair, and along the edge of her proper left arm. There is some more concentrated retouching to an area of restoration in the lower right corner, in the girl's right leg, and in the yellow curtain, upper left. Otherwise retouching is confined to small and scattered, cosmetic spots, and the painting is in overall good condition.
