Condition

This work is very good condition overall. There is scattered evidence of light handling and wear around the edges with a few very minor abrasions. The left side of the canvas exhibits a slightly abraded surface with scattered minute losses to the media which is inherent to the artist's working method and intent. There is a fine 3 inch linear abrasion located 26 1/4 inches from the left edge and 30 inches from the top edge. Additionally, there is a small area of fine linear abrasions located 26 inches from the top edge and 12 inches from the left edge. Under ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Unframed.
