There is a retouched repair in his chest at right, and a few scattered spots of retouching in the background, and some finely applied cosmetic spots in the figure. There are some thin lines of retouching to some craquelure in his forehead. Stretcher bar marks are visible at the edges. Offered in a carved giltwood frame.
