The canvas is not lined. Inspection under UV light reveals areas of sensitively executed retouching; including two small spots by the figure in the foreground's proper right ankle (the largest measuring approx. 0.5cm); two areas to the top of the table in the upper right of the composition (each measuring approx. 3cm long) and some lines of retouching, associated to stable lines of raised craquelure, to the right of the foreground figure's head. There are a small number of tiny flecks of pigment loss to the extreme edges of the work. There is light surface dirt throughout. This work is in overall good condition.
