This painting is in very good condition. Close inspection with both the unaided eye and under UV light reveals normal florescence and no signs of restoration. There is a short line in the varnish that fluoresces differently along the upper edge about 6 inches from the right. This short line is approximately 1 inch in length. The piece would benefit from a light cleaning. The work is framed in a dark green and gold panel molding. The frame is in good condition with normal wear.
