Additional Notes & Condition Report

Not restored since it was purchased in 1965, so all restoration dates to before that time. The canvas ; the varnish layer is dense and hard to penetrate with UV light. The impasto of the flowers is flattened. There is a 5-inch vertical tear in the upper right quadrant, and some pitting of the surface. Also inpainting around the flowers in the upper right quadrant.
