This work is in very good condition overall. There is a repair to the board located in the middle area of the painting (the branch of the tree), which is only apparent under ultraviolet light and from the reverse. The board is in good condition otherwise. There are a few scattered colourless liquid media accretion on the surface of the top register, which fluoresce under ultraviolet light inspection. Examination under ultraviolet light also reveals traces of scattered minor and minute spots of restorations throughout the composition, primarily on the bottom half of the painting.This work is accompanied by the original frame of the artist.
