    Condition Report*: We would like to thank Lowy Fine Art Restoration in New York for the following condition report:
    The artwork is executed in oil on a medium wove canvas. The canvas is oxidized, appropriate for its age, but stable, and stretched tightly onto its stretcher. Ultraviolet examination reveals a very small amount of dotted previous re-touching in the upper section towards the right hand upper edge, and a small bit of re-touching in the mother figure's hair. The work is in otherwise pristine condition. It appears clean, and varnished with an appropriate protective synthetic.

    Framed Dimensions 55.5 X 42 Inches
