Condition

The board is sound. The surface is covered in a layer of varnish and there is a layer of surface dirt. There is minor paint loss around the edges. There are minor scuffs and scrapes to the surface, including a minor brown line in the lower left quadrant, a small abrasion near the "e" on the left hand side of the piece, and a small nick below the "a" on the left side. Nails are visible around the edges of the piece. There is a small abrasion near the lower edge center of the right side of the work. There is some minor paint loss visible in the green pigment on the right side of the work. Pencil draft lines are visible near the lettering. Under UV pigment fluoresces in the lettering and in the black pigment along the edges, though varnish prevents a conclusive analysis. Held in a brown strip frame. Unexamined out of frame.
