The cardboard is laid down on cradled panel. There is a thick varnish through which UV cannot fully penetrate but there do appear to be some possible historic small retouchings to parts of the edges. There are some fine lines of very slightly raised craquelure in places. There a few very minor dents and light surface scratches, including a small dent to the centre of the upper left quadrant. There are a few scattered tiny accretions. This work is in overall good condition.
