The canvas is lined, the paint surface is dirty and the varnish is rather streaky has become quite matt. There is a small damage less than 1 cm. long in Christ's chest, and similarly three small losses in the background to his right, two with some discoloured retouching; the craqulure around these areas is potentially liable to some flaking. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals the milky varnish but apparently very few retouchings confined solely to sparse and very small scattered spots. In overall good condition.
