The frame is covered in gold leaf and shows normal wear due to age. The artwork was surfaced cleaned with the appropriate methods and materials and re-varnished. It was relined with toned Belgian linen, to better correspond with the age of the painting, and a sheet of clear polyester Mylar was interleaved between the canvas and the support. It was then stretched over a new, custom-made stretcher.
