Technique and condition

The painting is on plain-woven linen canvas with a slightly open mesh. It has a twentieth-century glue or glue-paste lining and a modern stretcher. It has a smooth, pink, oil-based ground.

The paint layers, which vary in number from one to three, are in oil and are generally opaque. There are no significant damages. The varnish is a natural resin, applied thinly. It has yellowed slightly.
