Condition

Canvas is not lined. Edges are reinforced with tape. A rich and textured impasto throughout the composition is well preserved. There are a few stable hairline cracks scattered in the composition. Under UV light a handful of pindots of retouching are visible around the extreme perimeter, likely to address prior frame abrasion. In addition there are four spots of retouching in the composition, one towards upper right corner, one near lower left corner and two to the lightest pigments in upper right and lower left quadrants, otherwise fine. This work is in generally very good condition.
