The canvas is unlined and the edges are taped. Inspection under UV light reveals a milky varnish through which UV light cannot fully penetrate. Inspection under UV light does reveal however several small spots and fine lines of retouching to the composition in addition to some areas of adhesive fluorescence to the upper left edge. There are two vertical stretcher bar lines and fine lines of craquelure to the composition with associated minor retouchings. There are a few imperfections to the canvas weave with some associated retouching, the most prominent of which is a vertical line to the lower left corner. There is some surface dirt and some light frame abrasion to the extreme edges, including a circular impression to the upper right corner. This work is in overall very good condition and would benefit from a clean.
