This work is in general good condition. The collage of papers and the prepared canvases are slightly yellowed, with some traces of foxing. The collage paper on the central element with the hand is slightly wavy. Analysis under UV lamps shows evidences of small retouching on three elements, few of them slightly visible under natural light at a close inspection.
