Hi Adrienne, The image on this website was taken when the painting was being conserved by the Auckland Museum in 1999. During the conservation process the frame and matt were removed leaving the painting as you see it. After conservation the painting was returned to the frame and again looks like how you must remember it. Tauranga Heritage Collection TaurangaHeritage@tauranga.govt.nz
