It has not been possible to see the work entirely unframed. The canvas is not lined. There are remains of old varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating, however examination under UV light appears to reveal dots of retouching along the lower edge, a further dot of retouching in the centre of the upper edge and two tiny dots of retouching to the upper left quadrant. There are stretcher bar marks, especially one running horizontally along the upper edge and another one running vertically along the right edge. There is some slight frame rubbing along the extreme edges. This work is in overall good condition.
