Condition Report

The canvas is stretched over a wooden backboard but has not been laid down and undulates; it would benefit from being restretched. There are areas of craquelure particularly top left and around her head.


Under ultraviolet light there are localised areas of infilling to the table cloth; to the casket; to Juliet's dress and to the fabric in the foreground. Also some very minor retouchings to her neck, chin and hair. The varnish is opaque.


Held in a decorative gilt plaster frame, probably the original.
