The painting is in good condition, as is the board, with no apparent cracks or warping. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals scattered spots of retouching on the lower right quadrant, along the outlines of the leg and upper register (in the hair and forehead of the main figure and to the left of the head of the small figure on the upper right), and on the bottom register. The retouchings are apparent only under UV light. There are some scattered areas of paint loss and craquelures in the thicker impastos in general, but the paint layers are well-preserved otherwise. The colors in the illustrated catalogue are mostly accurate, except the red tones are stronger in reality. Framed, on gilded, wooden, European frame.
