This work is in good overall condition as viewed. There is evidence of light wear at the edges of the work due to abrasions with the frame. Upon close inspection and bright light, there is a horizontal fold line at the top of the canvas. There is some fine craquelure to areas of thicker impasto at the lower left quadrant of the work. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals a spot of restoration at the lower right quadrant above the drum, and at the figure's chest near her hand. Framed.
