Unexamined out of frame. The construction appears to be secured to the backboard, though it is lifting slightly at the upper right corner. All elements of the construction appear securely adhered to the backing card. There is some extremely minor rounding at isolated points to the extreme edges of the backing card. There are one or two very minor and faint cracks to the uppermost layer of the card, including one to the lower edge near the lower right corner. There are some remnants of adhesive visible around the edges of the tape in places. There may be some very slight fading to the pigments and some light surface dirt and one or two instances of surface matter. This excepting, the work appears in very good overall condition.
The work is floated on the Artist's painted wooden backboard, with a small number of very minor hairline cracks in line with the grain of the wood, and enclosed within the Artist's perspex box.
