This work is in very good condition overall. The surface of the painting has noticeable stable craquelure throughout, which is inherent to the artist's choice of medium and working method. Under close inspection, the canvas is slightly slack on the stretcher and the collaged elements at the lower portion of the canvas are slightly undulated. There are a few, very minor unobtrusive losses to the pigment along the top and bottom edges and dulling to some of the impasto peaks which are also consistent with the artist's choice of medium and working method. The hanging elements show signs of oxidation and wear, which is inherent to their found nature and the artist's intentions. Unframed.
