This work is in very good condition overall. There is light evidence of handling to the extreme edges of the sheet. There is a slight undulation to the sheet, inherent to the artist’s chosen medium and working method. Under very close inspection, there is stable hairline craquelure in the more thickly impastoed passages with a few pinpoint areas of resultant loss. The colors are bright, fresh and clean. Unframed.
