This work is in very good condition. The canvas has not been lined. The colors are well preserved. There is a pin dot loss to the upper edge and a small amount of gold leaf residue, likely due to frame abrasion. Under UV light: there are three 1/4 inch areas of inpainting in the lower left corner. Otherwise, fine.
