Condition

This work is in very good condition overall. The wood and plaster elements appear stable and well intact. The surface texture and tonal variations are inherent and consistent with the artist's choice of medium and working method. There is evidence of some light dust accumulation and minor surface soiling. There is evidence of some scattered stray media and a few, scattered surface accretions also consistent with the artist's working method and choice of medium.
