The canvas has a fairly recent relining. Under a thick varnish which has somewhatr discoloured, there is some fine craquelure throughout which has resulted in some flaked paint loss. There are some scattered retouchings throughout particularly to the lower left and to the face and hair of the figure of Peace. The lot is offered in a later wodd frame which has suffered some paint loss and chips but is overall in reasonable condition.
