This work is in good condition overall. There is light wear and handling marks to the edges. The upper right corner is shown with gentle abrasion to the surface. The upper half region is inspected with general fibrous and plastic accretion, with occasional light circular surface impression in isolated area throughout, all most likely from the previous packing materials. A minor paint loss is evident on the lower right (71 cm from the right, 33 cm from the bottom), and white accretion to the lower left corner area. Dripping marks of varnish is throughout the whole surface, inherent to the original execution method. When examined under UV light, there are few areas along the left and right edges fluoresce in dark, which suggests previous minor in-painting.
