signed Claudio Bravo and dated MCMLXXII (lower center)

oil on canvas

This work on canvas is well stretched onto a good stretcher. The paint layer is clean and lightly varnished. No retouches have been added. While there are no damages or paint losses, some of Bravo's original color is discolored around the chess pieces in the center of the composition, in the grey side of the table along the bottom edge, and in a few other spots in the upper right. The work is in beautiful condition. (This condition report has been provided courtesy of Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.)
