Additional Notes & Condition Report
Wax lined. Frame rubbing. Dirty, yellowed varnish. Scattered craquelure with an some of paint separation in the lower left. A 1/2 inch linen covered liner has been nailed to the edges of the canvas, and possibly partially glued. Partially visible stretcher marks. There is a dulling varnish that makes the detection of inpainting near impossible under UV light. However, there does appear to be an area of around 2 inches at the far left center; few spots in upper right corner and a 6 x 1 1/2 inch area to the right of the store sign of possible restoration.
