It has not been possible to examine the work fully unframed. The canvas is not lined. The canvas is stripped-lined.There is a milky and uneven vernish preventing UV light from fully penetrating. However examination under UV light appears to reveal a spot of retouching to the centre of the left edge, some strokes and lines of retouching in places, most predominately along the extreme edges and some fluorescence in areas. There is a vertical tear (approx. 5cm long) to the lower right quadrant. There are lines of craquelures throughout the composition associated with tiny flecks of paint losses. This work is in overall fair good condition.
