The panel is flat, even, and ensuring a stable support. Inspection under ultra-violet light reveals some isolated spots of cosmetic retouching, including:
- one circa 10cm vertical stroke in the lower right corner;
- some small dabs in and around the gondola; and
- some fine lines in the upper part of the left framing edge, addressing frame rubbing.
Otherwise, this work is in overall good condition and is ready to hang.
