This work is in very good condition. All collaged elements are stable. Very close inspection reveals a few compressed impasto peaks as well as a few tiny and unobtrusive losses to some of the peaks. There is a light layer of dust which has settled in the recesses of the work. Close inspection reveals some light wear to the edges and corner tips, most notably to the lower right corner tip which has some associated fraying. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light.
