This work is in fairly good condition, some scattered craquelure to the impasto across the painting, all in line with the age of the painting and artist's creative process, some paint loss to the lower right section, and some further paintloss to the upper center section. Some minor signs of paint retouching to the lower right section under the UV light.
The colour in the catalogue illustration is accurate, with the overall tonality being softer in the original work, and the black and dark greens to the upper left are much more dense and vivid in the original work
