Technical Summary

The painting is generally in good condition. Although there is extensive repaint along the edges, traces of a barbe are visible in raking light and in the x-radiograph, which seems to indicate that the panel was not cut down. There is repaint in the cloud at the upper left, the area to the left of the large rock, and the sky at right. There is retouching in the rock formations. The x-radiograph discloses underneath the Holy Family what appears to be a large kneeling figure.
