Condition

The canvas is lined. There is a thick layer of discoloured varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating. However, UV examination reveals some spots of retouching, predominantly to the lower left quadrant as well as to the upper left and right corners. There are some fly spots to the upper part of the composition. This work is in overall good condition and would benefit from a clean.
