A raised vertical ridge is evident 2 inches from the left side running most of the length of the canvas. The canvas has pulled away from the stretcher slightly along the upper left corner. There is a very small protrusion in the lower right center roughly 12 inches from the right edge and 3 inches from the bottom. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there are scattered areas of inpainting throughout, particularly in the upper left. Framed.
