This work is in good overall condition as viewed. There is evidence of light wear along the edges of the work due to abrasions with the frame, but this does not affect the overall work as it is covered by the frame itself. There is some light craquelure to the paint, mostly at darker pigments, but these are stable and consistent with the age of the work. Upon close inspection, a small area of restoration is visible at the bottom left corner. All other inconsistencies are due to the artist's working method. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals an area of restoration at the bottom right corner. Framed.
