The work was analysed, studied and photographed. Following disinfestation, the support was cleaned, strengthened and and elements required for proper conservation were replaced.
The pictorial layer was fixed to the support and then the overpainting, varnish and dirt that covered the original painting were removed; the lacunae were filled in.
