Some spots of dark retouching are visible in the right-hand image, taken in ultra violet light, but it is noticeable that the large areas of restoration visible during surface examination are obscured in ultra violet light by the varnish layers. A large paint loss can be seen in the background to the left of the head in the central x-ray, as can smaller losses within the background. Close examination of the x-ray reveals that the brushstrokes do not have the range and variety in handling seen in the x-ray of the painting of Henry VI.
