Oil on canvas, lined. The picture surface is in generally good condition aside from minor surface dirt and an extremely fine web of cracquelure. Under UV light, there is an area of older, brushy retouching visible just below the signature at center left. Additional minor retouching visible at the lower right corner. The majority of the work is covered by a thick varnish that fluoresces green and prevents proper reading of the picture's surface.
