This work is in good condition. Some horizontal craquelure is noticeable throughout the surface of the canvas, due to the canvas being previously rolled which can be easily treated. Upon closer inspection, some faint water stains on the lower right corner edge, centre right and lower left section of the work can be observed as well as a 3cm surface abrasion on the upper right corner and a minor surface imperfections on the bottom left corner. All the above are inherent to the artist's working process. There appears to be a thin layer of dust throughout which would benefit from a light clean. There appears to be some minor restoration to the white background in the lower left edge of the canavs when viewed under the UV light.
The catalogue illustration are very accurate.
