The panel is stable. Inspection under UV light reveals an uneven varnish and a few historic instances of retouching to the extreme edges. There are a few instances where the ground is exposed in keeping with the artist's process, demonstrated by the inscribed signature. There is some minor paint shrinkage in places, only visible upon close inspection. There is some minor frame abrasion to the left and lower edge of the panel. This work is in overall good condition.
