This work is in very good condition overall. The sheet is hinged on the reverse to the backing board in all 4 corners. The colors are bright and fresh. The sheet is unevenly cut and there is a slight undulation to it. The 4 corners of the sheet are slightly dulled. There are a few areas in the red portion of the composition that have stable craquelure and a small, unobtrusive area of pinpoint pigment loss. Under very close inspection, there are a couple of unobtrusive, very minor tears, each less than 1/8 inch, along the center right edge of the sheet. Framed under glass.
