The canvas has an old relining. In our opinion, the canvas has been over-cleaned, resulting in the loss of original paint. Much of the painting has been retouched. There is very old retouching, and more recent work as well. Much of the background and coat have been reworked, and there are numerous retouches on the face, hair, the right shoulder and cravat. There are cracks visible overall.
