The canvas is not lined. Inspection under UV light reveals one small area of retouching towards the right edge of the lower right quadrant (approx. 1cm in length). There are artist's pinholes in each corner. The canvas undulates very slightly in places. There are some fine lines of craquelure. There are some tiny flecks of loss at the extreme edges and corners in places. There are a couple of tiny losses to the central, textured passage. There is some minor frame abrasion. This work is in overall very good condition.
