Inspection under UV light reveals some restoration along the vertical panel join as well as a more concentrated area in the darker tones of the Madonna’s red robes and the darker areas in Joseph’s robes The Madonna’s veil has also been restored. Very small, localised cosmetic strengthenings are found almost throughout. In a carved wooden frame with a small loss to the reverse.
