Condition

This work is in good condition overall. The canvas is unlined and the work is double sided. There are some faint scattered abrasions with some associated pigment losses. Upon close inspection there are some very faint, semi-transparent scattered accretions and faint surface soiling. There are 2 minor, very shallow, linear indentations noted in the lower center right, roughly 1/8 in from the bottom edge of the canvas. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there are 2 small spots along the left, one near the edge and the at the top corner, that fluoresce darkly and appear to be the result of restoration. Framed.
