This work is accompanied by an Attestation of Inclusion from the Wildenstein Institute, and it will be included in the forthcoming Renoir Digital Catalogue Raisonné, currently being prepared under the sponsorship of the Wildenstein Plattner Institute.

The canvas is lined and the edges are taped. Inspection under UV light reveals a milky varnish through which UV light cannot fully penetrate. There are two tiny pinholes, one to the lower left and one to the upper right corner. There is some very light surface dirt and surface accretions visible only on very close inspection. There are some very fine lines of craquelure to the white pigment in the head of the figure. There are a few tiny dots of pigment loss to the extreme edges. This work is in overall good condition.
