The work has been examined framed. The canvas is not lined and is slightly loose. There are stretcher bar marks. Examination under UV light reveals no evidence of retouching. There is a small thread towards the figure's nose. There are a few thin lines of craquelure in places, notably visible to the dark blue pigment. There is a tiny line of discolouration (approx. 0.5cm long) to the upper right quadrant. There are a few scattered flyspots. Impasto is nice. This work is in overall very good condition and could benefit from a light clean.
