Condition Report

Unframed. The work is lined with a mylar coating, and the edges are reinforced with tape. The colors present nicely. There is pigment shrinkage in the areas of thickest impasto, most notably in the yellow pigment in the upper left and lower right quadrants. There is a scratch to the canvas in the lower right quadrant. There is a very faint horizontal stretcher mark at center left. There is frame abrasion to all four edges. The canvas is slightly dirty. Under UV light: A few possible strokes of inpainting are present along the edges of the canvas, possibly to address the aforementioned frame abrasion. The work is in good condition.
