Under raking light inspection, a few isolated vertical lines of hairline craquelure measuring 1-2 inches in length become apparent at the lower left-center edge of the composition. Two faint circular surface scuffs become apparent at the lower center in the field of sienna-colored pigment. Under ultraviolet light inspection, 4-inch oval areas of fluorescence become apparent in the navy fields at the upper right and left, and in the yellow/orange field at the upper right.
