The board is adhered to a backing board. There is some slight rounding to the extreme corners, and some chips and nicks to the extreme edges, in keeping with the materials. There is a small dent to the extreme lower right corner, only visible upon close inspection, with one fine line of cracking running around its edge. There is some possible, minimal reticulation in the yellow pigment at the centre of the right edge. There is some light surface dirt throughout and some studio matter. The varnish may be slightly discoloured. This excepting the work appears to be in excellent overall condition.
Inspection under ultra violet light reveals fluorescence and possible spots of retouching in the upper left quadrant.
