This work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of minor wear and handling to the edges and corners, with associated minor abrasions, only noticeable upon close inspection. There are minor undulations to the canvas in the lower left quadrant, only noticeable under raking light and a result of the canvas tension which is slightly loose. There are scattered embedded paint bristles, inherent to the artist’s working method. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Unframed.
