This work is in very good condition. The canvas is unlined. The surface is richly textured and the impasto is well preserved. There is some minor paint shrinkage in the black pigment of the vase and the blue of the flowers.Under UV light: there are some very fine strokes of inpainting in the right half of the vase and a few pin dots along the extreme upper edge, likely to address frame abrasion.
