The canvas is lined. The artist appears to have made revisions and additions to the canvas, which presumably was not stretched at the time the artist painted the composition. Following its completion, the canvas was lined and the upper-right corner was restored. Under UV, areas in the dress and in the lower center beneath the feet of the figures fluoresce from restoration, as do a few other dots that are visible on the right side in the path and immediately to the left of the male figures left leg. There are also a few spots of restoration around the edges, where the artist's tackiing holes would have been. The paint layer is stable, well-textured and in good condition.
