This work is in excellent condition. The canvas is well stretched. To create the work, the artist collaged various elements onto the surface, and painted over the canvas and the collaged sections. The complex paint layers are very healthy. None of the collaged elements are visibly unstable. There is no restoration or damage. The work does not appear to have been varnished, and although it seems to be clean, it shows no signs of having been cleaned. The work should be hung as is.
