This work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of wear and handling to the edges, including associated abrasions and pinpoint losses. There is a small indentation in the canvas to the left of the figure’s knee. Visible upon close inspection, there are scattered areas of paint separation, inherent to the artist’s process. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there are three small spots along the center right edge that fluoresce darkly. Unframed.
