Additional Notes & Condition Report

Two tiny paint flakes at center; 1 inch hairline scratch at lower left corner; uneven varnish; the reds and dark greens fluoresce differently under UV light. This does not appear to be restoration, however. Some 20th century pigments fluoresce naturally under UV light.
