1962年作

Original canvas. The work appears to be in very good overall condition. Canvas undulates slightly in the corners. Faint stretcher bar marks visible to the stretcher edges. Minor frame abrasion. Some localised areas of very fine craquelure and possible shrinkage in the upper portion of the canvas, with one or two very minor specks of associated loss. A small surface abrasion in the lower left hand corner with a few possible minor instances elsewhere. Some surface dirt, specks of matter and studio detritus. Instances of accretions throughout. UV light inspection reveals some areas of fluorescence consistent with the Artist's pigments and an uneven layer of varnish. Held in a simple gilt frame.
