This work is in very good condition overall. There are some signs of handling and wear to the lower two corner tips. Upon further inspection there is some soiling to the center of the upper right quadrant and to the upper right edge, approximately 2 inches from the upper right corner. These appear to be media accretions and part of the artist's working process. Framed under glass.
