Condition

The panel is sound. UV examination reveals some areas of retouching to the sky, the largest of which is approx. 7cm long, and some further small spots in places. There are three spots of fluorescence along the lower edge which probably pertain to adhesive relating to the laying down process. This work is in overall fairly good condition.
