This report was prepared by Alvarez Fine Art Services Inc.:
This pastel on paper is in good condition overall. The paper does not present tears or paper losses. The paper is mounted to a cotton canvas and stretched on either a strainer or stretcher and nailed around the sides; the tacking edge is a bit frayed in areas. Exposure to humidity over time has caused mild planar distortions. The mild scalloping in the upper left corner is a result of the mounting and environment changes over time. Visually, the paper is mildly oxidized from contact with acidic material and a natural process of aging due to light exposure. There are two drip marks in the center of the image in the sitter's neck, one approximately 1 1/2" long and the other approximately 2 1/2" which are a bit distracting. Otherwise, the pastel media is very well preserved.
