Under UV: Some dotted retouchings and some restored craquelure, specially in the background on the putti as well as in the foreground. Further dotted retouchings on the horses as well as on the figures. A bigger retouching on the left leg of the man to the right as well on the man next to Briseis. The varnish fluoresces irregularly greenish.
