Glue relined. Face extensively repainted; the contours of the cord attached to the boat, the tree trunks, the branches, and the shadows created by the creases in the boy's clothing have been reinforced. These restorations have been carefully and professionally done; the overall appearance of the piece is very good. The varnish layer appears to be 40-50 years old.
