We wish to thank Alejandra Morales Tessier for her kind assistance in confirming the authenticity of this work.

This work is in very good condition overall. The canvas is unlined and well-stretched. The colors are vibrant, and the media layer is stable. Under raking light inspection, a few very fine diagonal lines of craquelure become apparent in the extreme upper left corner; these are stable. Under UV: intermittent fluorescence occurs throughout which is inherent to the media selected by the artist. The work is ready to hang. Framed.
