This work is in good condition overall, as is the canvas. There is evidence of minor marks and handling along the edges and margins of the painting, along with associated abrasion marks on some areas, a spot of paint loss on the upper left, a slight dent in the middle left (greenish area). Upon close observation, a blunt hairline scratch is apparent on the lower middle (about 9 cm in length but the first 5cm is relatively fainter). There is a spot of brown media accretion on the middle center (background). Under ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Framed.
