Oil on canvasboard laid down on cradled panel. The panel is sound. There is an opaque layer of varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating. There appears to be some old retouching running along the upper edge which does not fluoresce under UV examination, however, and a further spot of retouching in the upper right quadrant. There are possibly a few further spots of old retouching. The work appears to be in overall good condition and would clean well.
