The panel is flat and even and ensuring a stable support. There are scattered spots of frame rubbing along the extreme edges. Ultraviolet light does not reveal any notable signs of retouching, although the varnish fluoresces opaquely and obscures a clear reading of the surface. This work is in good condition and its appearance could be further enhanced if desired with a light surface clean.
Held in an elaborate gilt frame.
The colours are somewhat more subdued and less pink overall than in the catalogue illustration.
