The work has been examined framed. Canvas is not lined. There is a superficial scuff located towards the lower right corner and only visible under very close inspection. There is a milky varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating. However examination under UV light appears to reveal three minor dots of retouching located towards the center of the upper edge and towards the center of the lower edge. This work is in overall good condition.
