The panel has been cradled with two horizontal batons along the upper and lower edges respectively. The panel appears to be flat, even, and ensuring a stable support.
There are some pin-head sized nail holes along the extreme framing edges, and some horizontal lines which appear to be superficial scratches within the varnish. With the exception of a few spots of cosmetic retouching in the background in the upper right and lower left corners respectively, as visible under ultra-violet light, this work has no other visible sign of retouching. This work is in good condition and is ready to hang.
Presented in a decorative gilt frame.
