This work is in good condition overall. The canvas is unlined and very slightly buckling. The surface texture variations and pigment separation visible are consistent with the artist's choice of medium and working method. There is evidence of some light surface soiling and light dust accumulation. Only visible when unframed, there is evidence of wear and handling to the corners and turning edges with associated fraying to the canvas and losses to the pigment at the corners and perimeter. There are a few scattered surface accretions and some minor surface abrasions to the canvas. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Framed.
