The board is sound. Generally in good overall condition. There are knocks and losses to the edges of the board, and rounding to the corners. The upper right corner appears to have been overpainted by the artist. There is some rubbing to the paint surface. Surface dirt and spots of staining. There are some scuffs to the paint surface, some of which appear to be inherent to the piece. Ultraviolet light reveals no apparent signs of retouching. Held under glass in a painted wood frame. Float mounted on a canvas backing card.
