There is very slight scuffing to the extreme edges and to the corners, with further spots of slight surface dirt and craquelure to the central areas of blue and red pigment. This is only noticeable upon close inspection. Elsewhere there are further very minor spots of studio detritus, but this excepting the work appears in good overall condition.
Housed in a thick heavy wooden frame, wet within a white-painted wooden mount, float-mounted behind glass. Unexamined out of frame.
