This work is in very good condition overall. All collage elements are stable and intact, some of the corners slightly lifting which is most likely inherent to the artist's working process. There is evidence of wear and handling to the edges, in particular the corner tips of the canvas. All surface irregularities including handling marks tears and undulation to collage elements and scuff are all inherent to the setter working medium and method. This work was not examined out of its frame. Framed under Plexiglas.
