This work is in very good condition overall. There is light evidence of wear and handling along the edges including hairline craquelure at the pull margins. The colors are bright and fresh. Under extreme raking light, some minor hairline craquelure is visible in the black area throughout the roof and a thin layer of dust build-up is visible on the surface. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, several scattered drip accretions fluoresce brightly but do not appear to be the result of restoration. Unframed.
