The canvas is not lined and inspection under UV light reveals no signs of retouching. There are some very fine lines of craquelure in places, largely concentrated in the right hand figures' heads, however these are largely only visible under close inspection. There are one or two possible lost impasto tips in the thicker areas of impasto. The work is in overall very good condition.
