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

The panel is sound. Examination under UV light reveals a tiny dot of retouching to the upper right quadrant in the orange pigment. There is some minor frame rubbing, associated with tiny paint losses, along the extreme edges. This work is in overall very good condition.
