Condition:
Craquelure, minor flaking, slight residue to canvas. CP (Under UV light: a darker area [where there is no varnish] around and into the signature shows up - possibly the painting was not cleaned in that area to avoid cleaning over the signature or possibly there is some restoration although the signature does not fluoresce [see photo detail of the signature]; also slight overpainting in the sky; small patch on far right side with a small repair showing on recto where the patch is; overall craquelure with slight instability; not lined; canvas is buckling in the upper left edge; frame having losses and patina loss. rf, 1-19-2019, 11:38 AM)
