    Condition Report*:

    Glue-lined canvas on new stretchers with inscribed part of original stretcher attached to frame; faint craquelure and stretcher creases; work may benefit from a light cleaning; under UV light, there appears to be inpaint in sky to address craquelure and frame wear as well as an appox. 1 inch vertical line of inpaint to the left of horse's head; a few spots that fluoresce in horse and inpaint to address craquelure in figure's shirt and hat; otherwise, a heavy discolored varnish layer makes reading this painting difficult. Framed Dimensions 30 X 35.75 X 3 Inches
