This work is framed. The board exhibits a light warping.


There are some minor abrasions/minor tears scattered along the right-hand. Other minor examples to other edges, but the right-hand edge seems particularly affected.


The varnish is slightly clouded. There is very light separation to the paint surface in the lower left corner and also scattered throughout the rest of the work. Light wear to the corners of the work. Lines of light discolouration running parallel to edges (measuring approx 10mm) due to framing.


Inspection under UV light reveals no clear signs of restoration or repair.
