This work is still stretched on its original stretcher. The paint layer is unvarnished and has probably never been cleaned. The paint is quite thinly applied in some areas within the colored composition, particularly in the lower right and upper left. This is probably original and not the result of any abrasion. There do not appear to be any retouches. The work should be hung in its current state. (This condition report has been provided courtesy of Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.)
