This work is in very good condition. The sheet is attached verso to the backing board in several places and undulates slightly. The left edge is torn, which is in keeping with the artist's working process. All collaged elements are stable. Close inspection reveals some light cracking to an area of thicker impasto towards the lower left edge. Extremely close inspection reveals some very light signs of ageing to the bread, which are consistent with its natural ageing process and which appear to be stable.
