This work is in very good condition overall. The variation in the tonality of the background is inherent to the artist's working method. There is evidence of scattered extremely fine and stable craquelure and drying craquelure, all of which remains unobtrusive. There is a small impression in the surface at the left edge approximately 19 inches from the top edge. There is no evidence of restoration under ultraviolet light. Framed.
