Under UV light there appears to be two periods of restoration; the earlier period is inpaint to frame abrasion primarily to the lower left edges of the canvas where some of the inpaint extends into the picture about an inch or so. More recent inpaint are a few touches to the wall along side the woman's left shoulder on the right with a few further tiny spots in the children's figures and standing dog.
