This work is in good overall condition as viewed.
There is evidence of light wear and losses along the edges of the work due to abrasions with the frame, but these are covered by the frame itself.
There is a minor brown accretion above the signature at the lower right corner, which is visible under ultraviolet light.
Upon close inspection, there is evidence of light hairline craquelure at a few areas of thicker impasto, consistent with the age of the work.
There are pinholes at the 4 corners of the work, which are inherent and original to the artist's working method.
There is evidence of pigment loss at the lower left quadrant, near the group of figures.
