The work has isolated areas of craquelure. The painting was wax relined and the surface appears to be stable. There are a few spots of inpainting at the extreme edges and in the upper left corner. The lining covered up back of the original canvas and obscured the artist's inscription. It appears as though the conservator has transcribed this inscription on to the new support. It is possible to see traces of the original through the lining but it is obscured.
