The following condition report was kindly provided by Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.:


This work is in excellent condition. The artist board on which it is painted is flat. There is a

small amount of weakness to the board around the extreme edges, hidden under the frame.

Under ultraviolet light the work reads unevenly due to Grimshaw's glazes and remnants of old varnish. No retouches are visible. The work should be hung as is.
