Condition Report

The work of art is in very good, stable condition. Clean surface with no losses. Signed, dated and titled on verso. Please note that there is a thread on the figure's jacket - this is part of the painting and not a scratch. The forehead of the figure is also painted with thicker impasto than the rest of the painting, as intended by the artist. Not examined out of the frame.
