This work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of light handling and wear to the edges, most notably to the bottom corner tips. There is a 3 inch scuff mark to the center of the bottom half of the canvas. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, the varnish fluoresces unevenly but does not appear to be the result of restoration. Unframed.
