The canvas is strip-lined. There is a thick varnish which prevents further examination. Nevertheless a close inspection under UV light reveals eight scattered small stains of retouching in the lower left quadrant and three other areas of retouching (2 x 1 cm) towards the center of the composition and in the center of the right edge. Apart from some very minor retouching along the left edge, this work is in overall good condition.
