This work is in very good condition overall. The canvas is unlined and well-stretched. A supportive piece of silk has been affixed to the stretcher between the canvas and the stretcher; this is not adhered to the canvas itself except at the extreme edges. The colors are vibrant, and the media layer is stable. Minor wear is present at the extreme edges of the canvas. Under UV: no evidence of inpainting becomes apparent. The work is ready to hang. Framed.
