This work is in good overall condition as viewed. There is evidence of light wear along the edges of the work, but this does not affect the overall image. There are some tiny specks of accretion at the surface of the work, but these are only visible upon close inspection and easily removable through a light, professional cleaning. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals no sign of restoration as viewed. Unframed, on a stretcher.
