This work is unlined and still stretched on its original stretcher. The paint layer is in excellent condition, and the colors are vibrant. There is a small scratch in the purple on the lower left, and a scuff or two in the white pigment around the edges. A few very faint minor surface accretions are present in the center left quadrant in the areas of green pigment. Under ultraviolet light inspection, no evidence of inpainting becomes apparent.
