This work is in very good condition overall. Under very close inspection, there is a very minor evidence of handling and wear to the extreme edges, including very light, and unobtrusive scattered areas of rubbing to the pigment, particularly where the pigment extends over the canvas overlap onto the turning edge. The surface is lightly soiled. Under ultraviolet light inspection there is no evidence of restoration. Unframed.
