This work is in very good condition overall. The canvas is unlined and slightly slack on the stretcher. The surface texture variations are consistent with the artist's working method and choice of medium. The canvas is slightly undulating and there is tension cracking along the turning edges. Under close inspection, there is evidence of stable craquelure and some scattered, unobtrusive organic accretions. Unframed.
