The canvas appears original. The canvas is slightly bowed at the upper left corner. There are possibly a few instances of flattening to the impasto tips, including to the dark blue at lower right. There are occasional minute air bubbles in line with the Artist's working method. There is a small area of very minor reticulation in the upper right quadrant. There is some light surface dust to the work in places. This excepting, the work appears to be in very good overall condition.
Inspection under Ultraviolet light reveals no obvious signs of fluorescence or retouching.
The work is unframed.
