Additional Notes & Condition Report

Glue relined. The varnish layer has been in place for some time, probably for the past 50 years. The contour of the face has been emphasized (not touching the face, but the background). The shadow outlining the bosom has been reinforced. There is a touch of inpainting on the shoulder, and a roundish spot approximately 1 inch in diameter in the back gound in the upper left quadrant. Nothing else showing under UV light.
