The following condition report was kindly provided by Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.: This work is in good condition. The canvas is unlined. On the reverse, there are three small reinforcements supporting small losses in the lower right side, two addressing minor losses in the lower center in the figure's dress, and another in the lower left to an uneven area above the signature. In addition, there is a small patch to the lower center in the center of the dress, and another addressing a small loss in the center right. The work is quite quickly painted, but the paint layer seems to be in very good state throughout with no abrasion, discoloration or other weakness.
