The board is stable. There is a layer of discoloured varnish preventing UV light from fully penetrating; however there do not appear to be any signs of retouching visible under UV light. The extreme edges are scuffed in places with some associated pigment losses. There is a small tear to the surface layer approximately 1cm. long at the lower part of the right edge. This work is in overall good condition. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
