The canvas has been strip-lined along the tacking edges. There is a light pattern of craquelure and a light stretcher mark corresponding to the outer and central vertical stretcher bars. Ultra-violet light reveals some relatively minor signs of restoration and retouching, notably a c. 2 by 3cm restoration where the tiger’s front leg meets its body and some other small restorations (patched on the reverse), some strokes of strengthening notably to the left of the sky, and some strokes at the framing edges.
