    Condition Report*: Original canvas--very fine weave. Well-preserved impasto. Craquelure commensureate with age. There are four very fine vertical hairline cracks to the paint film at roughly identical intervals running from top to bottom edges of the canvas. This possibly suggests the canvas having been rolled at some point. This can be seen in raking daylight. Under UV examination the painting is very clean with no apparent restoration besides two tiny spots with fluoresce at the far upper right corner. Canvas slightly slack in frame. Framed Dimensions 27.5 X 30.75 X 2 Inches
