An Algerian Beauty

oil on panel

Unframed: 55.9 by 45.4cm., 22 by 17¾in.

Framed: 66.5 by 56.5cm., 26 by 22¼in.

The panel is very slightly warped. Some minor rubbing to the framing edges. There is a pattern of fine craquelure, which appears to correspond to the grain of the wood, visible in places. Examination under ultra-violet light reveals retouching to the framing edges, some spots to the upper left corner and lower right corner and some minor flecks in places, notably around the figure and to her face.
