The reverse of the stretcher is covered with brown tape but the canvas appears to be unlined. The canvas may have been restretched - there are additional tack holes on the tacking edge. Frame rubbing. Very light scattered inpaint. There is a 1 1/2 inch line of inpaint at the lower right over the stretcher and near the edge, which may possibly be a repaired tear.
