The canvas is not lined. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals some small instances of retouching mostly visible in the upper left quadrant, with possible further more minor instances elsewhere. There is a small pigment loss towards the centre of the upper edge and to the right of the lower edge with some further small speckles of probable loss to the work in places, predominantly towards the left and right edges, and faint associated stretcher bar marks primarily to the left edge. The weave of the canvas is slightly uneven in places, mostly visible in the upper left quadrant. There is a possible artist's pin hole at the centre of the upper edge.
