The surface is in good condition overall, aside from minor frame abrasion along the upper and right edges and a few pinpoint dots of discoloration on the left figure's skirt. Under UV: the varnish fluoresces green unevenly. There is a small area of retouching under the left figure's wig above her proper right shoulder. Sparely applied, isolated pinpoint dots fluoresce throughout the composition, with a concentrated area around the capital at upper left.
