This work is in very good condition overall. The sheet is hinged intermittently along the edges verso to the backing board. The lower edge of the sheet is deckled. The left, right, and upper edges of the sheet have been unevenly cut by the artist. There are artist pinholes at all four corners. There is a slight undulation to the sheet. There is a square, 1 inch loss to the sheet along the right edge, 26 inches above the lower right corner. Under close inspection there is a minute 1/2 inch tear to the sheet at the central right edge. Upon further close inspection there are scattered areas of drying cracks throughout, most notably to the red and off-white passages. Under even further close inspection there is a 6 inch linear crease in the lower left quadrant. Under further close inspection there are a few scattered hairline cracks to thicker areas of impasto, with a few associated minute losses. There are a few small, scattered areas that show evidence of pigment transfer to the Plexiglas glazing. Framed under Plexiglas.
