Nous remercions Dr. Jürgen Pech de l'aide apportée à la rédaction de cette fiche.

The work has been examined partially framed. Oil on panel. The panel is sound. There is a milky varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating however examination under UV light appears to reveal scattered tiny dots of retouching. There is a small vertical panel loss to the lower left corner and there is another smaller panel loss to the tip of the upper right corner. There is some frame rubbing, associated with retouching visible under UV light, along the extreme edges. There are a few superficial thin scratches in places. This work is in overall good condition.
