Surface grime. Faint impression of stretcher bars, slightly visible along upper edge in yellow pigment. A small inconsistent area of white pigment within yellow at upper left, possibly original to the work. Some areas of white pigment fluoresce under UV inspection but are not believed to be restoration. Areas of black pigment appear thin in natural light and possibly skinned, but may simply may have been thinly applied.
