There is an area of fine lines of craquelure in the lower left corner, only visible upon extremely close inspection, and some further scattered instances elsewhere. There is some surface dirt and studio matter and a layer of varnish. This excepting the work appears to be in excellent overall condition.

Inspection under Ultraviolet light reveals fluorescence in keeping with the Artist's working methods.

The work is held within a wooden frame.
