This work is in very good condition overall. The sheet has yellowed slighly with age. There there are artist's pinholes at the four corners and there is a slight undulation to the sheet which is inherent to the artist's working method. Additionally, there is evidence of fine and stable craquelure in the more heavily impastoed areas of paint. Two very small losses to the sheet are evident at the bottom two corners. The work is hinged verso to the matte at intervals around the edges and framed under Plexiglas.
