Lined with scattered inpaint around the edges. Small areas of inpaint on the bed; left edge of stone vessel at lower right appears to have been reinforced. Dense varnish layer makes earlier restoration difficult to detect, but there appear to be two small repaired tears (each approximately 1/2 inch at upper right), as well as a 3 inch horizontal line of inpaint at upper right near the corner that may also indicate a repaired tear.
