This work is in very good condition overall. There is minor evidence of handling and wear along the edges, most notably the lower left corner. There are scattered surface irregularities caused by paint bubbles seen mostly in the more thickly painted areas, inherent to the artist’s working method and time of execution. Under close inspection, there are areas of hairline cracking along the lower edge, right side. Unframed.
