Canvas is not lined. There is some frame rubbing along all four edges and an associated indent towards the center of the right edge. There are scattered fly spots in places. There are a few thin superficial craquelures most predominantly in the green and yellow impastos. There are a few dots of varnish and ink (probably) to the upper right quadrant. There is a tiny pinhead sized paint loss located towards the lower right corner. Examination under UV light reveals no evidence of retouching. This work is in overall very good condition.
