This work is in very good condition overall. The canvas is unlined. Under close inspection, there is wear and handling to the edges and there is adhesive residue visible along the perimeter, likely from the time of execution. The collage elements are stable and well intact. Also under close inspection, there are scattered signs of wear, such as variations in surface texture, creases and tears in the collaged elements which are inherent to artist's working method and chosen medium. Under very close inspection, there are scattered, brown pinpoint spot accretions across the white horizontal band running through the horizontal axis of the composition. Framed.
