This work is in good overall condition as viewed. Upon close inspection, artist's pinholes are visible at the four corners of the canvas, of which are consistent with the artist's working method. Upon close examination, there is a minor sign of craquelure near the upper left of the canvas. Signs of hairline cracks are visible near the center of the work. There is evidence of minor paint loss on the extreme edge near the bottom right corner, associated with flaking of the paint of which appears to be in stable condition. Upon very close inspection, there are pin-point accretions near the right edge and the center in the lower half of the canvas, presumably belong to the artwork's original condition. Superficial accretions of golden paint are visible along the top right, left and bottom extreme edges, presumably coming from the leftover paint of an old frame of the work. Examination under ultra violet light reveals no sign of restoration. Framed.
