In an excellent state of preservation and has never been restored or cleaned and is under glass. There is good impasto in places and delicately applied glazes in other areas with some paint crackelure and shrinkage but this is minimal. There is some discolouration on the breast and arm of the girl on the right. It is painted on a good quality panel which seems to have two strengthening bars running from top to bottom, 12cm from either edge of the panel and the work is sealed in to the elaborately decorated gilt plaster and wooden Victorian frame. 141009
