Condition

This work is in good condition overall. There is evidence of wear and handling to the edges where the collage elements at the perimeter are faded and lifting from the canvas support. Upon close inspection, there are scattered areas of soft lifting visible where the collaged elements have become unadhered from the support. There is staining visible throughout the canvas. Under close inspection, there are light areas of soiling visible throughout the canvas. The canvas is slightly undulated due to the artist chosen medium and working method. Under very close inspection there are scattered pinpoint areas of paint loss throughout the canvas. The canvas is lined. Framed.
