The large panel support is secured by four horizontal battens. The paint surface is mostly flat and stable though some small losses can be made out along the panel joins. To the naked eye the painting appears in dirty but good condition, with the gold abraded in just a few areas. Some retouchings can be made along the joins and scattered in a few other areas, as confirmed by inspection under UV light. Offered in a modern painted frame in good condition.
