There are a few areas of fine and stable soft craquelure located in the heavily impastoed areas of paint and a small spot of paint loss on the upper portion of the right edge (yellow area). There are also two minor spots of surface accretions on the upper right margin and upper and lower left corner (paper). There is no evidence of painting restoration or retouching under ultraviolet light inspection. The original colour of the painting is more vibrant in reality.
