The canvas appears original. A few corners of the collage are slightly lifting, otherwise all collage elements are securely adhered. There are scuffs towards the edges and to the lower part of the work. There is evidence of adhesive in a few places, largely to extreme edges of the collage elements. There are one or two spots of possible old water damage in the central striped section, only visible upon close inspection. There is dirt, surface matter and some staining towards the lower edge, with a further more minor instance above the centre in the collage on the right hand side. This excepting, the work appears in very good overall condition.
Inspection under Ultraviolet light reveals no obvious signs of fluorescence or retouching.
The work is floated in a simple white painted wooden frame, held under glass.
