The work is in very good condition. The canvas is not lined. The surface is richly textured with thick impasto and the colors are extremely rich and vibrant. There are some very fine lines of craquelure visible in the lighter pigments at lower center. Under UV light, the dark blue pigments fluoresce darkly and there is a small stroke of retouching at the extreme lower right corner.
