Additional Notes & Condition Report

Some flattening to the impasto. Scattered craquelure. Inpaint in the shadows of the starwell, to the chair back and legs in the lower left corner, to the picture frame in the upper right quadrant, to the hair and faces of the rightmost children, to the contours of the mother's dress and hair, and to the hair and dress of the nurse. A few light touches elsewhere. Dulling varnish makes it difficult to detect full extent of restoration under UV light.
