Condition

This work is in very good condition overall. The media layer is stable, and the pigments are bright. A few pinpoint dark brown spot accretions are present at the extreme upper right edge. A few very faint brown drip accretions are present in the lower right quadrant, in the white field above the signature. Under ultraviolet light inspection, a minor half-inch drip accretion becomes apparent in the lower left quadrant in the arm of the figure.
