This work is in particularly good condition, as early works by this artist are often in challenging
condition. The heavy piece of board used by the artist is stable and well supported. The paint layer is flat
and has probably never been cleaned. It shows only a few small restorations in the upper left, and a few
tiny dots in the lower left and lower center. The few losses that have occurred can easily be retouched. (This condition report has been provided courtesy of Simon Parkes Art Conservation, Inc.)
