This work is in very good condition. All collaged elements are stable. Extremely close inspection reveals a minute loss to the lower right corner tip and some minute media accretions in isolated places throughout. Further extremely close inspection reveals a light brown surface mark in lower right corner, by the sitter’s foot. The canvas is slightly loose on the stretcher and would benefit from being tightened, and there is an associated crease running along the left edge. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light.
