This work is in good condition. The paint layer is quite dusty. It may have been varnished later and it may be slightly dirty. No retouches or damages are visible. Under ultraviolet light one can see that the original paint layer reads quite strongly, but it is highly unlikely that there are any retouches. The painting should be dusted and possibly lightly cleaned, but overall it looks well as is. (This condition report has been provided courtesy of Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.)
