Condition

A thin piece of paper, measuring no more than 3.5 cm, was attached to the lower centre of the blue canvas, and it has now been removed by a professional restorer. Burn marks are apparent through out all three works due to the artist's working method. Otherwise, all three panels are in good condition.
