There is evidence of wear, losses and scratches along the edges of the work due to abrasions with the frame. There is some dirt and light accretions on the surface of the work, including some visible accretions at the upper left quadrant of the work, but these are easily removable through a light, professional cleaning. There is very light craquelure at areas of thicker impastos, including a few areas of paint losses, but these are only visible upon very close inspection and under bright light. There is a diagonal scuff at upper left quadrant. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals a few spots of restoration at the leaves on the upper right quadrant and at the upper edge of one fruit on the lower right quadrant. Framed.
