This work is in very good and sound condition overall. The colors are vibrant, the media layer is stable, and the aluminum elements are secure. Two faint diagonal scuffs measuring each three inches in length are present on the red element in the upper right quadrant. Under raking light, faint drip accretions become apparent along the extreme left edge of the back panel, and on the lower left interior surface of the central red element. Under close inspection, minor faint surface scratches become apparent along the outward central surface of the red element, and on the black panel in the upper quadrants.
