Condition

9.24.23-In my opinion regarding:  1462- A UV examination reveals heavy old varnish, I further note what appears to be an abrasion (fluorescing as purple) along the upper to center right edge of canvas at frame and a light abrasion at center right, I have taken images for your review, I further note some scattered minor inpainting, a visual examination reveals some light discoloration in the clouds, inherent texture, and craquelure, the painting is likely relined, however canvas is mildly loose in frame, visible canvas appears free of any apparent rips or tears, I am not an expert on such paintings, so please let me know should you have further questions, the frame shows some wear, rubs and minor loss
