Condition Report

This work is in very good condition overall. The sheet undulates throughout, inherent to the artist’s chosen medium and working method. Under very close inspection, there are a few scattered areas of drying cracks with resultant loss in the more thickly impastoed areas. There are a few micro tears along the edges including a ½ inch tear along the lower right edge beneath the artist’s signature. Please note, this work has not been inspected under Ultraviolet light. The colors are bright, fresh and clean. The sheet is adhered verso to the mat intermittently along the edges. Please note, the verso of the sheet has not been inspected. Framed under Plexiglas.
