    The painting was cleaned in 1972 revealing considerable overpainting which had been applied at a much later date than the original portrait. After cleaning it was revealed that the dress had a lace-up bodice. There was also evidence of some overpainting of the face.
    A photographic copy of the portrait prior to cleaning is available at: Government Printing Office 2 - 06724
