Condition Report

The work is lined using wax as an adhesive. There is surface cracking throughout the composition though it does appear stable at this time. There appears to be a horizontal break in the canvas running through the center of the composition which has been inpainted accordingly. Under UV light there appear to be additional scattered small spots and pindots of inpaint throughout.
