It has not been possible to see the work entirely unframed. The canvas is lined. Examination under UV light reveals small dots of retouching in places most predominately along the extreme edges and to the pink/beige pigment in the upper right quadrant and in the left part of the composition above the apples and to the plate. There are webs of stable craquellure throughout the composition. This work is in overall good condition.
