The background of the painting is slightly dirty. Under close inspection a pinhole is visible, located at 3.5 cm from the upper edge and 24 cm from the left edge.
There is a light horizontal stretcher mark in the middle of the canvas.
Under close inspection, a light white touch is visible located near the lower edge and likely to be the result of an old retouching (approx. 1 x 1,5 cm).
