Groupe de six jeunes femmes


signed M. L. (lower left) 

oil on canvas

33.3 by 55cm., 13 ⅞ by 21 ⅝ in.

Framed: 47.8 by 69.6cm., 18 ⅞ by 27 ⅜ in.

The canvas is not lined. Inspection under UV-light reveals a tiny spot of retouching to the left of the upper edge, corresponding to a small indentation in the paint surface. There are two further small indentations; to the left of the lower edge, and to the right of the lower edge, the latter of which has a minor associated paint loss. There are some extremely minor lines of craquelure in places, only visible upon very close inspection. There is some frame abrasion with associated paint losses to each of the four corners and the extreme right edge, not visible when framed. There is a tiny loss to the blue pigment in the upper right corner. The work is in overall good condition.
