This work seems to be in particularly good condition overall. The canvas is still stretched on its original stretcher. The paint layer is clean and is not noticeably varnished. There are no reinforcements on the reverse. Under ultraviolet light, one can see a very thin diagonal line of retouches in the innermost vertical red section, slightly to the right of center. There is a spot in the lower right, another spot in the center right, a few spots on the center of the top edge, and a spot in the center of the left edge. Some areas, particularly in the red color, read slightly stronger under ultraviolet light, but these do not correspond to retouches. The work should be hung in its current state.
