There is some very minor rounding to the extreme corners with one or two instances of further more minor rounding to the extreme left edge in places. There is a tiny vertical slither at the extreme upper left corner of loss to the upper surface, which appears inherent to the work. There is some probable minor fading to the pigments. There is an instance of detritus towards the lower left corner, most likely from the current frame, with a small number of further more minor instances elsewhere, and some light surface dirt. Subject to the above, the work appears in very good overall condition.
The work is held behind glass in a simple wooden frame.
