framed: 16¼ by 24½ in. 41.3 by 62.2 cm.

This work is in good condition overall. There is evidence of handling and wear to the edges, including minor losses most noticeable along the lower edge. There are several drip accretions and scattered spot accretions throughout the surface, most notably right of center. There is a light layer of surface dust throughout. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, the aforementioned drip accretions fluoresce brightly but are not the sign of restoration. Also Under Ultraviolet light inspection, the scattered areas along the edges fluoresce darkly and appear to have benefitted from restoration. Framed.
