The medium is oil on canvas. The canvas has a wax lining and the work has been restretched. There is good impasto retained. There is some frame rubbing. Under UV: there is an area retouching in the lower left quadrant, to the left of the vase, about 4 inches long. There is a small spot of retouching in the center left, and another, center right. There are a few stemps of the flowers which fluresce also but these appear to be related to the pigments and the artist's technique. The work presents very well.
