This work is in good condition, some faint craquelure to the white paint in the lower left, in line with the age of the painting and some further craquelure to the lower right section of the painting. Overall the impasto is very stable. Some very faint scuff marks across the lower part of the canvas only noticeable upon close inspection. No sign of restoration under the UV light.
The colours in the catalogue illustration are accurate, although the catalogue illustration fails to convey the rich texture and heavy impasto of the painting.
