The canvas is lined, the paint surface is dirty and the varnish is discoloured. There is a small loss in the paint surface in the centre of the saint's head less than 1cm. long, with associated retouching. There are also pin-prick losses scattered along the upper margin. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals the thick, opaque varnish which fluoresces, impeding the discernment of older intervention - but the canvas appears to be largely untouched and in very good condition.
