Oil on panel. Cradled and somewhat convex, especially evident at top and bottom edges. There are 2 horizontal panel cracks, visible to the naked eye. They extend across the surface: one through the glass and below the squirrel's head, the other along the top edge of the basket. Aside from panel cracks, the majority of the still life is in overall good condition. Under UV: additional small scattered spots of retouching throughout the background and along the edges.
