Two tiny losses, one on mother's chest and one above signature. Some craquelure throughout, including an area of circular cracquelure above the mother's head. Difficult to detect restoration under UV - possibly a few touches to mother's hands. Canvas is buckeling. Wear along the edges due to frame rub.
