The canvas is not lined. Inspection under UV light reveals no obvious signs of retouching. There is paint shrinkage and some fine lines of craquelure with a couple of tiny associated flecks of paint loss to the child figure and to the pavement in the lower centre of the composition. There is some minor frame abrasion along the extreme edges. This work is in overall very good condition.
