The board is sound. Inspection under UV light reveals no signs of retouching. There is a small loss to the board at the centre of the left edge, measuring approximately 1cm, and a further small nick at the top of the right edge, which are not visible when framed. There is some further minor frame abrasion along all four edges, which are not visible when framed. This work is in overall good condition, and may benefit from a clean.
