This work is in very good condition. Original canvas. No retouching apparent when viewed under UV light. There are at least three separate areas in which an additional medium has been adhered and painted over. The first is at the lower left, where a large area of coarse canvas has been laid down. The second is at center, a square of extremely smooth surface. The third is at the upper right, where edges of an unknown medium, probably paper, have been adhered to the original canvas and shaped into dimensional ridges. These additions to the original canvas surface are the intention of the artist.
