This work is in good overall condition as viewed. Evidence of light wear and losses at the edges of the work due to abrasions with the frame, but this does not affect the overall image as it is covered by the frame. There are minor spots of pigment loss mainly at the top quadrant in the background of the work. All other inconsistencies are inherent to the artist's working method. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals no signs of restoration. Framed under glass.
