Description: oil on panel
Dimensions: 75 by 55cm., 29½ by 21½in.
Medium: oil on panel
Condition Report: The panel is flat, even, and ensuring a stable support. Inspection under ultra-violet light reveals minor spots of retouching, including: - a circa 7cm diagonal line of retouching in the mirror's frame in the centre of the composition, possibly addressing a superficial scratch; - one spot of cosmetic retouching in the upper left corner; - some intermittent strokes along the right framing edge addressing frame rubbing; and - minor spots in the far lower right corner. The main composition appears to be untouched. This work is otherwise in overall good condition, presents very well and is ready to hang. Presented in a decorative gilt frame.
