This work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of light wear along the edges. The colors are bright, fresh and clean. The more thickly painted areas are all intact. Under very close inspection, the artist’s use of graphite into the paint layer caused some very minor skips to the yellow paint, particularly on the right edge, but these are the result of the artist’s process. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Framed.
