The canvas has not been lined and has been stretched on a keyed wooden stretcher that appears to be the original. There are some isolated, pin-head sized nail holes visible along the upper and lower framing edges respectively. There are some signs of wear around the edges with some associated small spots of pigment loss, including some small surface marks in the lower left quadrant. However, these are not distracting. Overall, this work appears to be in good condition and is ready to hang.
