Minor cracking visible to the recto where the patches are. Please note that there are minor surface marks throughout the work, particularly towards the extremities of the work. There are minor stretching marks to the edges of the canvas. Light surface cracking in places. There are areas along the extremities where material which has been adhered to the canvas appears to be lifting slightly or exhibits minor loss.
