Condition:

This work is in very good condition. Extremely close inspection reveals some very unobtrusive drying craquelure in a few isolated places, most notably to the dark green pigment, and some light wear to the upper right corner tip. Very close inspection reveals some light canvas draw to the upper left and right corners and faint stretcher bar marks to the two horizontal edges. Further very close inspection reveals a few minute specks of loss; a couple to the lower centre right of the composition and one towards the upper right corner. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light.
