Madame Grammont Camoin has kindly confirmed the authenticity of this work. A certificate will be issued to the buyer after the sale. 

The canvas is not lined and inspection under UV light does not reveal any signs of retouching, however there are two spots of clear infilling to the lower edge. There is some frame abrasion to the extreme edges with associated tiny paint losses in places, and two pin-sized holes, one towards the lower right corner and one to the upper right corner. There are some fine lines of localised craquelure in places. This work is in overall very good condition.
