The work has been examined framed. Canvas is not lined. There are hairline craquelures only visible under very close inspection. There are tiny paint losses, one located towards the center of the right edge, another located towards the lower left corner and two located towards the upper right corner. There is a milky varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating. However examination under UV light appears to reveal one small dot of retouching located towards the upper right corner. This work is in overall very good condition.
