Oil on canvas.

SURFACE: in good condition aside from faint surface dust. UNDER UV: A small area of inpainting in the upper right quadrant in the background and inpainting along the edges to address frame abrasion. There is an even varnish which fluoresces green. Work presents well and the colors, particularly the pinks, are fresh.
