This work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of light wear and handling along the edges with resultant minor areas of loss, especially at the upper right corner. The colors are bright, fresh and clean. Some minor, vertical cracks have formed from the top edge but are all stable and likely a result of the artist's working method. There is an approximately 16-inch horizontal crack beginning in the upper third of the left edge and appears to be inherent to the natural wooden support. The cracks to the plates are inherent to the artist's process. Upon close inspection, some hairline craquelure is visible in the heavily impastoed layers. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Unframed.
