It has not been possible to see the work entirely unframed. The canvas is not lined. There are pinholes at all four corners. There is a milky varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating, however examination under UV light appears to reveal no evidence of retouching. There are a few small spots of minor paint shrinkage in places, notably to the black pigment, and a few scattered tiny pigment losses. Impasto is nice and well preserved. The surface is a bit dusty. This work is in overall very good condition and could benefit from a light clean.
