Very good condition. The artist appears to have prepared sturdy paper with a heavy layer of gesso that varies in density throughout to creates the picture's texture beneath the oil paint. There is a vertical crack to the gree at the center left and a horizontal crack at the figure's widow's peak. Small areas of paint separation are most visible in the figure's moustache. Under UV, there is one small, noticable retouching of a loss to the figure's headdress to the right of the widow's peak.
