The canvas is not lined and is evenly tensioned on its original stretcher. UV inspection reveals a very small area of retouching around an impastoed bud towards the centre of the bouquet. There are fine lines of stable paint shrinkage in places also to the bouquet. There are wonderful areas of thick impasto which are well preserved and this work is in overall good condition.
