This work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of handling and wear to the edges, most noticeable in the corners and turning edges. There is a slight undulation to the sheet, which is stretched around a wooden strainer. Under close inspection, there are scattered light colored drip marks along the lower right corner, bottom edge and to the right of the red orb. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, the aforementioned drip marks fluoresce lightly and appear to have been retouched. Unframed.
