For a complete statement of the Terms of Guarantee please review the Conditions of Sale full size Full Size Image oil on panel CONDITION REPORT The following condition report was kindly provided by Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.: This picture is recently restored. The panel on which it is painted is flat and stable. The paint layer is quite thinly painted in places. Some weakness has developed in the face of the woman on the left, and there is retouching here. There is a spot or two in the cheek of the seated woman, and some cracking has been retouched in the cushion under her feet. There is also some retouching in the side of the chair in which she sits. Other retouches can be clearly seen under ultraviolet light, mainly addressing cracking in the wallpaper around the crescent shaped ornament and a few other isolated spots. The work should be hung as is.
