This work is in very good condition overall. The canvas is stretched over panel. The variations to the surface are due to the artist's choice of medium and working method. There are some faint, scattered surface accretions and some scattered signs of handling to the perimeter. Under close inspection, there are a few scattered areas of pigment separation, only viewable upon close inspection. There are a few, very minor and stable hairline surface cracks noted to the surface.
