Additional Notes & Condition Report

Some wear along the edges and in the corners, including some minor damage from nails along the outer edges. Small gauge to the left of the woman's hat at far left above center. Had at one time been glued to a board and since removed. Hairline scratch running 3/4 horizontally across the upper portion of the painting from the left edge (very difficult to detect and almost appears as a very fine pencil line.) Few minor surface scuffs.
