Condition report

The canvas has an old reclining and is loose in some areas.  The paint surface shows traces of a discoloured varnish throughout, evidence of craquelure, but generally sound.  Ultraviolet light reveals no sign of retouching but the aforementioned varnish prevents conclusive examination.
