By descent to the present owner.
Relined canvas; there appears to be craquelure throughout with frame wear along edges, most notably along upper left with abrasions and loss; two small spots of discoloration in upper right; under UV exam, there appears to be strengthening along figure's neck and bouquet on chest; however, a discolored varnish layer makes this painting difficult to read. Framed Dimensions 35.5 X 30.5 Inches
