This work is in generally good condition. The canvas is not lined. There are small abbreviations along the edges due to the frame, most dominantly in the lower left and right corner. There are three spots of paint loss in the lower edge towards the left corner, the left center and in the center of the upper edge. There is paint shrinkage in the area of the light red pigment towards the upper center. There is a small scratch with an associated dent at the center of the left edge. There are scattered fine lines of craquelure throughout in areas of different pigments. There is a horizontal hairline craquelure which appears coherent with the canvas.
UV light reveals a glue residue stain in the lower left corner and some small areas of retouching, most apparent along the center of the lower edge, a further small spot in the lower end of the dark green area, towards the top of the light red area and the upper edge of the orang pigment.
