All collaged elements are stable. There is a thin layer of dust. Close inspection reveals tiny nicks to the outer edges of the wooden box. Very close inspection reveals very thin surface abrasions with associated losses in located places, most notably to the printed paper glued to the center of the composition; to the pink hearts and to the yellow tea-pot
which are in keeping with the artist's choice of medium. There is a tiny nick located 4 cm above the head of the naked figure and three very thin hairline cracks to the blue paint located to the round frame on the upper side of the composition. The work is in good and original condition. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
