Examined by restorer 11/9/02 – original image not recoverable
Commentary: This painting was overpainted by one of Schoonover’s students at the artist’s insistence. The daybook number en verso, and the student’s verbal explanation support this. The painting was examined by an art conservator on November 9, 2002 and it was determined that the original image was not recoverable.
