Oil on copper, nailed to a wooden support that is cradled. The edges of the copper, along with the nails, are visible along the left and right edges. There is some minor undulation to the copper, especially at the center where it is very slightly convex. There is a small dent near the Baptist's proper right elbow. The picture surface is in overall good condition aside from small scattered losses that have been retouched and are visible to the naked eye. These are visible in the sky; at the proper left shoulder of the virgin; to the left of the Baptist's face; and in the face of the horse at left. Some thinness to the panel at upper left. Under UV light, the aforementioned retouches fluoresce under UV light. Additionally there are a few small scattered dots and dashes of retouching throughout. In overall good condition and ready to hang. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
