This work is stretched onto a new stretcher. The painting has not been restored or varnished. There is a very slightly raised line running horizontally across the center of the work, which suggests that the artist may have folded or rolled the canvas at some point. However, this line is neither unstable nor immediately noticeable. This work is in excellent condition and should be hung as is.
