This work is in very good condition overall. Upon close inspection and under certain raking light, there is occasional hairline cracking along the extreme edges, to be expected with unique canvas stretcher angles. Wear and handling marks are visible along the edges, especially in the sharp corners where slight thinning of paint is noted. There is also stray pigment along the edge, likely from the time of execution. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, there is no evidence of restoration. Unframed.
