100 by 80cm.; 39¼ by 31½in
The canvas is original. There are a small number of light scuffs in places at the extreme edges. There is a tiny scratch in the top left corner of letter 'I', fourth row down. There are some very fine lines of paint residue around several of the letters, most likely in keeping with the Artist's practice and materials. There are some small flecks of surface dirt and studio matter, with one tiny red fleck to the bottom left corner. There are one or two minor accretions, particularly to the extreme edges. This excepting, the work appears to be in excellent overall condition.
Inspection under ultra violet light reveals no obvious signs of fluorescence or retouching.
The work is floated within a simple black tray frame.
