condition

This large work is in lovely condition. The canvas is well stretched. The paint layer has developed slight cracking in the neck and upper cheek of the figure, as well as cracking corresponding to the horizontal stetcher bar in the center of the work. These are not indications of any instability. The painting seems to be clean. The varnish is light but illuminates the picture well. In the hip of the figure, there is a restoration measuring about 1 1/2 inches long which addresses slight paint loss. There does not seem to be any corresponding damage on the reverse of the canvas. There is another restoration in the very light colored passage beneath the head of the bright red fish in the lower center; this retouching is not very well applied and is clearly visible to the naked eye. There are also a couple of small spots of retouching around the extreme edges. The retouching in the lower center could be adjusted, but the work can otherwise be hung as is.
