This work is in very good condition overall. The media layer and wooden elements are stable. The surface of the wood is worn and aged throughout, which is consistent with the artist's choice of support. A rectangular chip in the wooden board is present in the upper right corner above the signature measuring 1/2 inch in width, which may be inherent.
