The piece HAS BEEN RELINED for MANY, MANY more years of hassle free and maintenance free enjoyment! RELINING does NOT devalue apiece. It INCREASES the value as almost ALL paintings have to be relined to maintain their integrity at some point otherwise they deteriorate. Under black light inspection there is sporadic in-painting. There is one small area left of the sitters neck where there is some paint loss. Also a small area of crackling bottom right corner. There is also a small lighter area on the forehead. All of these issues are a very easy inexpensive fix by a professional conservator. However the piece display just fine the way it is. Most likely the piece has been cut back on the sides. The frame is a modern frame with some chips and dings. But it is sturdy and displays the piece beautifully.
