This work is in good condition overall. Craquelures are present in areas with thicker paint layers, particularly on the upper right, with some slight cupping in certain parts, but the paint layers are otherwise sound and stable. Scattered spots of foxing are appearing on the surface, particularly on the left edge area. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals areas of retouching in general, which are not apparent to the naked eye.
