This work is in very good and sound condition overall. All elements are present and stable. A light layer of dust has settled to the crevices. Under close inspection there are scattered areas of pinpoint paint loss. Under further close inspection there are areas of nicks and scratches throughout. All surface irregularities are inherent to the artist's working method and chosen medium.
