This painting is in very good condition. With the unaided eye the only readily apparent issue is a slight concave bow to the canvas board. Closer inspection under ultraviolet light reveals fluorescence of artist's pigments, and no signs of restoration. The piece is framed in an ornate gold frame with a linen liner and a gold inner liner. The frame is in good condition, showing minimal wear. The linen is yellowing. Brass plate: Elena Stiha by V. Stiha. Verso: inscribed: A mi querido Dr. Bernardez con amor, Elena. Santa Fe, Aug. 1990. N.S.A.
Signed l/r: V Stiha 1958
