Additional Notes & Condition Report

Dirty varnish; frame rubbing; uneven right edge (crudely cut); there appears to be several scattered spots of inpainting along the edges. No further apparent restoration. It appears that the very top of the board had gotten wet, perhaps before it was used by the artist. The top edge of the board appears a bit crushed, but the pigments are stable and appear not to be effected, which leades me to believe it happened before the painting was executed.
