Frame rubbing. Surface grim. 14 x 18 inch horizontal loss in the far left center edge. Some spots of discoloration to the faces, the coat of the guest and on the furniture. These appear to be the result of an earlier attempt to highlight these areas with pigments that have chemically changed. Possible inpainting of the cracks in the lower left and lower right, however these are not visible under UV light.
