Along the borders, there are traces of stable craquelures especially to the top left and towards the bottom side of the right border. There is a small paint loss towards the lower left corner. Under the UV lamp, color retouchings are visible in correspondence of two craquelures in the lower right corner.

Vi è una piccola caduta di colore in prossimità dell’angolo inferiore sinistro.
