This work is in very good condition. Any crackling or surface imperfection is inherent to the artist's creative process and choice of medium. The canvas is slightly slacking on the upper right corner edge and some very faint handling marks across the left and right edges. There is no restoration apparent when viewed under the UV light.
The colours in the catalogue illustration are very accurate.
