Unframed: 32 by 41cm., 12½ by 16¼in.

Framed: 53 by 60.5cm., 21 by 23¾in.

The panel is even and stable. Ultra-violet light reveals an even varnish and no notable signs of retouching (there is some fluorescence along the upper edge which may be attributable to frame rubbing). There are a few small superficial dents around the centre of the composition. Apart from this the painting is in good condition, and ready to hang.
