There is minor wear and associated loss, notably along the edges. Buckling is visible the upper right and lower left corners. Scattered craquelere is present, mostly to areas of impasto but the paint layer is stable. There is a small patch on the reverse of the work (lower right quadrant from the front) which appears to be from the time that the artist painted it.
