This work is in very good condition overall. The canvas is unlined and well-stretched. The media layer is stable, and the colors are vibrant. A few very faint minor white scuffs, each measuring no more than 1/2-inch, are present at the extreme lower left corner. Under raking light inspection, six shiny, beige spot accretions become apparent in the lower center quadrant. Under UV: fluorescence occurs intermittently throughout, which is inherent to the media selected by the artist. A fine band of frame abrasion becomes apparent at the extreme left and upper edges. No evidence of inpainting becomes apparent. The work is ready to hang.
Framed dimensions: 55 7/8 by 44 7/8 in.
