Oil on cradled panel.

Two areas of inpaint skillfully address the partial panel splits running vertically: a 6 x 1 3/4in area (at its widest) from the top edge through the woman's left arm, and a 4 1/2 x 1/2in area from the bottom edge up through the lower part of her gown. Additional spots of inpaint apart from a general scattering include a patch on the right side of the gown's edge; a 2 x 1 1/4in area on the dog's chest; and a line addressing frame abrasion particularly along lower right side edge. In natural light the inpaint is not visible but reveals occasional surface irregularities.

Framed Dimensions 26.75 X 23 X 3.5 Inches
