Canvas is not lined. There are areas of paint loss in several places throughout the extreme edges, most predominantly on the center of the upper edge and upper right corner. There is craquelure throughout the blue, dark pink and grey pigment and further fine craquelures throughout the composition. There is a small area of uplifting craquelure in the lower center of the grey pigment field (approx. 0,5 cm in length). There is paint shrinkage in the black pigment of the figure. There is an area of paint loss (approx. 1 cm in length) towards the center of the lower edge, in the dark green pigment, and further two specs of paint loss surrounding it. Examination under UV light reveals areas of retouching, located in the upper left corner and a small dot (approx. 0.3 cm) located towards the center of the composition. This work is in overall good condition.
