This work is in very good condition overall. There are tonal and textural variations to the surface, inherent to the artist's working method. There is a very minute loss to the pigment at the turning edge of the upper left corner, visible upon close inspection. There are three very faint accretions along the bottom edge: two linear accretions to the right of the artist's signature, and one pinpoint accretion in the lower left corner, all visible upon close inspection. Under ultraviolet light, there is no evidence of restoration. Framed without glazing.
