The following condition report was kindly provided by Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.: This oval shaped panel appears to be made of two pieces of wood joined horizontally through the center. There are four tape reinforcements on the reverse, which may correspond to cracks or other joins in the panel. The only retouching seems to address paint losses across the join in the center of the panel. The painting has been lightly cleaned. The work may clean further, but the work looks well as is nonetheless.
