10/12/23 10:55 am: In my opinion regarding LOT – 1155: I note that the painting is presently intact, including the frame, with several areas of professional restorations with inpainting of varying degrees (see images under natural light and UV light), the canvas feels relatively taut, and there is craquelure throughout commensurate with medium and age, the metal-mounted wood frame appears secure and exhibits patination and has visible seams at the corners
