This work is in very good condition. Close inspection reveals a few minute and unobtrusive media accretions in isolated places. Further close inspection reveals a few unobtrusive nicks and scuff marks to the artist's frame, most notably at the lower edge. Close inspection reveals a few inconsistencies to the paint application, most notably towards the lower left corner and which fluoresce unevenly when examined under ultraviolet light.
