This painting is in good condition, as is the canvas. There are a few tiny spots of foxing on the background (upper right and lower left), but the rest is clear and taut. Minor wear and handling are evident along the edges and corners but the paint layers are sound. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals no indication of retouching.
