Please note that this work is stretched and unframed. The canvas is unlined. There appears to be a handful of areas where excess oil paint/stick is loose and is at risk of falling off. There are also areas where it appears that the oil stick that has been used is at risk of smudging it in contact with another surface. There are areas where the magazine pages that have been collaged to the canvas extend past/ wrap around the framing edge and appear to exhibit some minor wear. Inspection under UV light reveals no signs of restoration or repair. Overall the work is in very good condition.
