Relined canvas; large area of in-painting at center, also visible in regular light, and in corners; old repairs visible (especially two, one horizontal, the other vertical, in the right portion of the painting); craquelure; a few cracks to frame, which appears re-gilded, but has newer gilt peeling and losses at top.
