There are a handful of very minor surface marks in places, only visible upon close inspection. There appears to be uneven varnish in places, which appear to be contemporary to the creation of the work and is predominantly visible in raking light. This excepting, the work appears to be in very good condition. Colours are true to catalogue illustration.
Inspection under UV light reveals uneven varnish but no signs of restoration or repair.
