Oil on canvas, transferred from panel, shaped top. The surface is in generally good condition aside from some minor abrasions and craquelure and an area of loss with active flaking at extreme upper center. Under UV light, the varnish has been selectively cleaned; some areas are difficult to read and in others older inpaints are visible. There are also scattered spots of inpainting across the entire surface visible over the varnish.
