This work is in good condition overall. Under close inspection there is evidence of wear and handing to the edges including minute losses to the pigment throughout. Under very close inspection there is cracking throughout the areas of tar. Further close inspection reveals that there are minor losses scattered throughout which are likely inherent to the artist’s working method and chosen medium. A superficial layer of dust has adhered to the surface. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Unframed.
