Condition

There is craquelure throughout the work. There are two lines of inpainting that stretch from the top edge down towards the gentleman's head, visible under UV light. There are five patches along the verso corresponding to areas of restoration and inpainting along the recto. Due to a thick varnish, it is difficult to discern the extent of the damage and repair work done. A cardboard piece affixed to the verso has been removed to allow for inspection of the painting. All stretcher keys present; discoloration and wear to the stretcher and verso. Light wear to the frame.
