    Condition Report*: Unlined, original canvas; craquelure visible throughout; the surface remains stable; a few tiny paint chips to the impasto of the flower petals; there appear to be some faint yellowing spots of a possible discolored varnish visible in the white background, possibly inherent to the artist's techniques and original work; under UV examination, there does not appear to be any previous restoration.
