The canvas is not lined. There is a milky varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating, however examination under UV light appears to reveal a spot of retouching towards the centre of the right edge and a few further smaller lines and dots of retouching in places, most predominately in the yellow background, and lines of possible retouching along the extreme edges, notably to the lower edge. There are lines of stable craquelure in areas, notably in the lower part of the composition and to the centre of the upper edge. There is some frame rubbing with associated dots of paint losses along the extreme edges. This work is in overall good condition.
