The canvas is lined and the tacking edges are trimmed. There is frame abrasion with some pindots of associated loss at extreme edges. Under UV: there appear to be a few small spots and pindots of inpaint in the background. While some pigments do fluoresce, particularly along the outer edges and lower margin, they appear to be the artist’s original.
