The losses are scattered about, but are primarily in the upper left quadrant. The crack to the panel is several inches long. The curve to the panel is subtle. The retouch is from several different restorations, and is scattered throughout, but is most prominent u.l. The craquelure is small, but the work is not entirely stable. The painting might benefit from cleaning.
