This painting is in good condition, as is the silk, which has no runs. There is a minor pin-sized hole on the middle of the top edge, as well as some tiny craquelures on the thicker paint layers, particularly on yellow flowers on the middle left, along with a few associated areas of paint loss. Upon close observation, a minute paint loss is visible on the tree trunk on the middle right. Examination under ultraiolet light reveals no apparent restoration.
Framed, with Plexiglas.
