The paint layer appears dry. There is a small area of craquelure along the lower left corner. Two 2-inch diagonal cracks run across the artist's signature. A dark spot, possibly not inherent to the painting, is present in the upper right corner. Under U-V light inspection, the green/olive and brown tones fluoresce, possible due to the pigment of the paint used by the artist. Overall, the work is in good condition.
