This work is in very good condition overall. The colors are vibrant; the media layer and all areas of impasto are stable. A few minor spots of paint loss are present at the extreme right and upper edges of the board due to frame abrasion. Under ultraviolet light inspection, fluorescence occurs throughout due to the pigments selected by the artist.
