The painting is in good condition overall with no major losses, creases, or losses. There is a network of minute losses to paint to the center of the painting; there is another loss to paint to the lower left quadrant. To the upper right corner, there is an unevenness to the surface that seems to be original to the piece. Along the margins, there are areas that are not completely covered with paint and show the underlying canvas, most likely original. There is a horizontal line visible to the upper left quadrant, which seems original. When inspected under UV light, there is no visible sign of restoration.
