The surface is in generally good condition, aside from minor surface dirt and dust; some mat staining at the edges; very faint, scattered foxing and a few isolated tiny pin dot accretions; a pin dot loss at center right; and some very fine craquelure to the darker pigments on the man's sleeve at lower right and shadow of the tablecloth. The colors remain fresh. Additional former tape mounts visible verso.
