Unexamined out of frame. The board appears to be sound. There is some very slight rounding to the extreme corners with some minor associated flecks of loss, which largely appear to be historic. There are a further small number of very minor nicks to the extreme edges. There are a small number of lost impasto tips only visible upon extremely close inspection. There is some minor flattening to some thicker areas of impasto. There are one or two scattered scratches to the paint surface, however, these are in keeping with the Artist's working methods. There is studio matter, surface dirt and dust in places to the work. This excepting, the work appears to be in very good overall condition.
