This work is in very good condition overall. There is minor evidence of wear and handling along the edges, including minor abrasions and pinpoint losses. The edges are taped, which is separating at the pull margins and causing scattered minor losses along the left edge. Upon close inspection, there is minor evidence of hairline cracking in the more thickly impastoed areas. The impasto peaks appear stable and intact. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, scattered areas of the aforementioned hairline cracking fluorescence darkly and appear to have benefited from restoration. The colors are bright, fresh and clean. Framed.
