This work is in very good condition overall. The tonal and textural shifts appear to be inherent to the artist's working method. There are scattered accretions, some of which may be studio splatter, primarily visible to the white painted passage on the lower half of the composition. There is an area of pinpoint loss in the upper right corner. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Please note this work has not been inspected out of its frame.
