The canvas is lined and the paint surface is very dirty, with a discoloured varnish. There is evidence of wear throughout, as well as discoloured retouchings visible scattered throughout. There are also small spots of retouched paint losses scattered, notably one to the right of the Madonna's mouth. Inspection under ultraviolet light confirms all this, and reveals more extensive retouching along the margins, as well as more concentrated retouchings in her face and neck. In overall fair condition.
