Seen under UV light. Signs of retouching apparent, especially dots and dabs of green and blue in the background to cover damage, and to his shirt. The paint on the head also fluoresces although there are no obvious signs of damage to the head so this could be due to pigment or strengthening. Two patches verso, and a couple of further spots of repair to the canvas. Some surface dust and dirt. The paint is a little rubbed and flaking at extreme edges. A couple of light surface scratches. The central horizontal stretcher bar has left a light imprint in the canvas, visible from certain angles. A couple of small pinholes, top left corner.
