The board is flat, even, and ensuring a stable support. There is some raised craquelure and a minor indent in the upper right corner, also visible in the catalogue illustration. Some very minor drying craquelure is also visible only upon very close inspection in the red rectangular shape in the centre of the composition. Ultra-violet light reveals a spot of retouching in the aforementioned indent. Otherwise, this work is otherwise in good condition and is ready to hang.
