This work is in very good condition. Extremely close inspection in bright light reveals some splash accretions towards the lower left corner tip. Very close inspection reveals some faint rub marks in isolated places to all four extreme edges and some wear to the upper left hand corner tip. Further very close inspection reveals a very short and faint rub mark in the brown pigment to the upper left of the composition. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultra-violet light.
