This work is in presentable condition. The canvas has been mounted on cradled panel. There is craquelure, primarily visible in the light pink roses. Under UV: the work is difficult to read due to an opaque varnish. There are some scattered pindots of inpainting in the peonies at the upper center and center right, and most likely some older lines of inpainting to craquelure in the background.
