This work is very good condition overall. The four edges are taped with artist's tape, which is secure but shows signs of wear from handling. The edges of the canvas also show signs of wear and handling seen in all four corners, particularly so in the lower left corner and upper right corner. There are signs of minor air bubbles in the areas of red paint throughout the surface of the canvas, likely inherent to the time of execution. Under close inspection, there is a minor 1/4 inch surface abrasion in the upper right quadrant approximately 3 1/2 inches from the top edge. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Framed in Plexiglas box. This work is accompanied by an artwork registration card issued by the artist's studio.
