The canvas has been lined. There is a pattern of hairline craquelure throughout; however, this appears to be stable and is not distracting. With the exception of some clusters of small spots and lines of cosmetic retouching along the extreme right framing edge and in the lower right quadrant, visible under ultra-violet light, this work is in good condition and is ready to hang.
Presented in a simple silver-wooden frame.
