The work is in very good condition. Please note that there are a handful of very minor surface marks within the white margins of the canvas. These marks are only visible upon close inspection and appear to be contemporary to the creation of the work.There are areas of glitter that are not as apparent within the catalogue illustration. These areas include the red fabric curtain, sweater, as well as the flames of the fire and the roses in the lower corners of the work. Please also note that there are two creases in the canvas one to the center of the left-hand edge, and the other within the upper-right hand corner of the work. The largest crease measures approx. 10cm. and both are visible within the catalogue illustration.
