This work is in very good condition overall. There is minor evidence of handling and wear to the edges, which have discolored slightly due to a previous mat and with age. There are scattered stable drying cracks in the more thickly applied areas, most notably in the dark layers of the cake. The colors are fresh and clean. The board is hinged verso to the mat intermittently along the edges. Framed under Plexiglas.
