The illustration is quite pale. Colours are more contrasted. Overall condition is pretty fine. Expected wear particularly to the sky and soft colours. Traces of previous restorations. It has been probably torn (horizontal scarf now restored on about 80 cm) on the red coat of the man on the right. Otherwise it has been cleaned and it is linen.
