Notes: Overall good condition; there are two small areas at bottom edge that are restored, one area is at lower left - at bottom of left figure, the other area is at lower right - at bottom of right figure; the small restored areas appear dark under uv light; at right, the area measures 3/8 x 1/2 in., at left, the area measures about 1 x 1/2 in; the corresponding areas on verso of work reveal the physical restoration on surface of aluminum; under uv light, at portions of bottom of each figure, there are variations in hue, probably due to pigments used, rather than to restoration; the same goes for two small areas that appear as a different color under uv light to leftfigure's right hand; there may be some minor retouch to part of outer edge of right figure's upper left arm; Unframed
