This work is in good condition. Visible only when examined out of its frame is some frame rubbing along all four edges. There is a pattern of craquelure towards the edges of the work which is in keeping with the artist's working process and choice of media. There are some light watermarks to the upper left corner which appear to be original. There is some light fading to the left hand side of the canvas, and some light undulation to the lower left corner. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light.
