The following condition report is provided by Hamish Dewar who is an external specialist and not an employee of Sotheby's:


Structural Condition

The canvas is lined and is securely attached to what would certainly appear to be the artist's original, four member, fixed wooden stretcher. This is ensuring a stable structural support.


Paint Surface

The paint surface has an even varnish layer. The paint surface displays an overall pattern of raised lines of craquelure, including corresponding to the stretcher members. These are stable. Inspection under ultraviolet light shows scattered vestiges of discoloured varnish within the foreground. Inspection under ultraviolet light also shows minor retouchings towards the upper left and right corners, a small retouching below the centre left of the upper edge, a few minor retouchings on and above the left part of the lower edge and a few further very minor spots and lines towards the centre of the right edge.


Summary

The painting would therefore appear to be in good and stable condition.
