This work is in very good condition overall. The canvas is unlined and well-stretched. The media layer is stable, and the colors are vibrant. A faint horizontal scuff measuring one inch in length is present in the upper right quadrant near the corner. A second faint one-inch diagonal scuff is present in the center left quadrant, in the red wing of the insect. Under ultraviolet light examination, scattered isolated areas of inpainting in the white background of the composition become apparent in the upper right and center quadrants, as well as the lower left and right quadrant.
