Additional Notes & Condition Report

Dirty varnish. Frame rubbing. Several paint flakes (upper left; left center; far right center, far left center.) The putty colored pigment used in the back of the little girl's neck and also in the lower center in the mother's dress fluoresce under UV, as well as a few small spots in the lower left corner area (in reds). Difficult to determine if this is restoration or original pigment used by the artist.
