This work is in very good condition overall. The canvas is unlined. There is evidence of light wear and handling to the corners and turning edges of the canvas. The surface texture variations and pigment separation visible, particularly in the black pigment, are consistent with the artist's working method and choice of medium. Under very close inspection, there are a few, scattered unobtrusive pinpoint losses to the impasto. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Unframed.
