Oil on canvas. The canvas is not lined and a bit loose. Examination under UV light reveals a few small dots of retouching in places, notably towards the centre of the lower edge. There are vertical and horizontal stretcher bar marks running across the composition and only visible under close inspection. There are scattered thin lines of craquelure. There are a few tiny dots of paint losses in places. There is frame rubbing along the extreme edges. This work is in overall good condition.
