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 not lined, the edges are taped and inspection under UV light does not reveal any signs of retouching. There is a pinprick-sized loss towards the lower right corner and a few very fine lines of craquelure in places only visible under very close inspection. There is some surface dirt and fly spots in places. This work is in overall very good condition.
