The painting has an old relining. There are a few retouched on each figure at their hats. There is a possible old retouches on the white horse. It appears that most of the sky has been thinly retouched, and there are a few tiny more recent retouches at upper left and a triangular area at the right edge above the horizon. There is more retouching on the distant hills and background at right. The inscription on the stretcher is apparently copied from the verso before relining.
