Condition:

This work is in very good condition. The edges of the canvas are taped. Extremely close inspection reveals some hairline tension cracks in intermittent places along all four edges, with some tiny areas of associated paint loss most notably to the extreme right verticale edge. Further extremely close inspection reveals a few minute and unobtrusive abrasions to the canvas along the right vertical edge and some minor canvas draw towards the corners, and some evidence of light wear to all four corner tips. Very close inspection reveals a few unobtrusive surface scuffs and scratches, and light wear in places. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light.
