This work is in very good condition overall. Embedded paint bristles are visible, and there are instances of faint pigment separation throughout the orange background, inherent to the artist's working method. There is evidence of light wear and handling along the edges, particularly seen in the bottom two corners. In the lower right corner, there is evidence of very faint hairline cracking visible only under close inspection and under raking light. There are some media accretions along the left bottom edge. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Unframed.
