Original unlined condition. A patch is adhered to the reverse at upper left. The surface presents well, aside from two discolored retouches on the figure's proper left knee and a few tiny, isolated pin dots of accretion. Under UV: in addition to the aforementioned retouches, a few fine dots and dashes of retouching fluoresce in the background at center right (corresponding to the patch) and on the figure's proper left arm. Ready to hang in its current state.
