Original canvas. The work work appears to be in very good overall condition.


There is a visible canvas seam running vertically from the upper to lower edge, visible in the area of brown pigment. There is a small area of paint loss to the female figure's dress toward the lower edge. There may be some further areas of paint loss in the figures although potentially this is in keeping with the Artist's working method.


Under ultraviolet light there appear to be no signs of retouching.
