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. There is a faint scratch which is about 2 inches long starting at the figure's nose, extending diagonally to the left. The piece is framed in an antiqued gold panel frame with a rustic antiqued white panel, carved detailing, and a linen liner. The frame is in good condition, showing normal signs of wear. The liner shows signs of discoloration.
