Retouch to fill craquelure, primarily in the lower half of the composition. A few dots of retouch, measuring between 1/8 and 1/4 in. diameter, scattered in the lower half. One such dot corresponding to an area of repair visible on the reverse and located along the right side center, 1-3/4 inch in from the edge. A second similar spot is located 1 in. in from the right edge. Retouch along bottom edge, l.l., probably to repair frame abrasion. Craquelure overall appears stable.
