The canvas is unlined. Inspection under UV light reveals no signs of retouching. There are a few scattered lines of craquelure throughout the work, largely in the lower half the composition, including one prominent line in the lower left quadrant at the lower edge which bears some associated paint loss. There are some further flecks of loss at the extreme edges in places, with a couple of match-head sized losses through the central passage and in the lower left quadrant. There is some minor paint shrinkage in the lower right corner. There are some possible lost tips in some of the thicker areas of impasto. There are also some accretions to the more raised areas of impasto. There is some surface dirt throughout.
