The canvas is lined, the paint surface is slightly dirty and the varnish is slightly discoloured. There is some frame abrasion visible on the left and right margins, and a diagonal strip of retouching is visible along the lower margin. Inspection under ultraviolet light confirms this, and further reveals an area of retouching in the lower right corner. The thick varnish, which fluoresces opaquely, appears to have been removed from a number of the fish and the bag, upper right, and there are retouchings around the outlines of the fish, though not in the still life elements themselves. The painting is in overall good condition.
