Additional Notes & Condition Report

Could use a light cleaning. Frame rubbing, with a few tiny holes along the tacking edge. 2 inch scratch from nail on frame, most likely, at the upper right corner edge. 3/4 inch hairline scratch at upper left corner. Tiny ding at lower left edge and a tiny puncture at lower center. There is a dulling varnish which makes the detection of restoration difficult. There does, however, appears to be several tiny spots of inpainting scattered in and around the figure of the woman and in the foreground. Backed by another piece of canvas
