Description: oil on panel

Condition Report: The single panel is uncradled and flat. The paint surface is relatively clean and the varnish only slightly discoloured. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals spot retouching in the proper left-hand side of the sitter's face and around his chin, beneath the window sill, left, around the sitter's sleeve, lower left, and in the sky, upper left. There is a scattering of minor retouchings along the right margin, but the painting is otherwise untouched. In overall good condition.
