The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by the Comitato per il Catalogo di Giorgio Morandi.

The canvas is unlined. Inspection under UV light reveals a milky varnish through which the UV light cannot fully penetrate and also reveals retouchings to the composition. There are lines of craquelure, some of which are raised and others of which are retouched, with associated small instances of paint loss. There are two horizontal stretcher bar marks with associated lines of craquelure. There is some wear and surface dirt to the extreme edges of the canvas. This work is in fairly good condition.
