This work is in good overall condition as viewed. There is some very faint and minor craquelure at areas of thicker impasto, but these are stable and consistent with the age of the work. There are a few small pinhole-sized areas of paint loss which are only visible under very close inspection. All other inconsistencies are inherent to the artist's working method. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals some small spots of restoration on the surface of the work, primarily along the edges, at the woman's neck and the face and hands of the child. Framed.
