The painting is in overall very good condition. Ultraviolet examination does not reveal areas of restoration or inpainting. Although some pigments fluoresce, they appear to be the artist's original intent. Two pinhole sized areas of organic material visible under ultraviolet. In overall stable and attractive condition.
