To the unaided eye, this piece appears to be in very good condition. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals normal fluorescence of the artist's pigments and no signs of restoration. The piece is framed in a semi-ornate gold frame with a linen liner and a gold fillet. Overall, the frame is in good condition, although there is split and apparent repair in the upper left-hand corner. This damage is primarily visible from the back side.
