What does this mean?

Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This portrait is very much in the style of Affandi and bearing his monogram and date (19) 75. What strikes me odd, ist that the back looks much younger than the front and the canvas has not turned brown from the excessive linseed oil. As you will know, there are quite a few not authentic paintings on the market and the experts seem to have different opinions. I assume you would have to take the painting to the Affandi Museum to have it authenticated, but first you would have to establish a waterproof provenance, going all the way from the artist directly to you. If so, congratulations!
