Original Canvas. Unlined. Canvas appears sound.
Upon close inspection, there are very minor surface marks to the sides of the work. There is some minor fraying to the ribbon and other weaving material. This appears to be inherent to the work and consistent with the nature of the material. Upon close inspection, there are several areas that display some very minor cracking to the white paint surface around where the artist has punched holes into/manipulated the canvas. Area of light craquelure, measuring approximately 10cm. wide by 5cm high, visible within the lower centre of the work. The work is in very good original condition.
