To the unaided eye, this piece appears to be in good condition. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals normal fluorescence of the artist's pigments and no signs of restoration. There is a light crazing throughout the surface of the piece which does not appear to have resulted in any paint loss. The piece is framed in a dark antiqued gold carved frame. The frame is in good condition for its age, showing normal signs of wear and light separation at its corners.
