This work is in very good condition. Some very faint and dispersed scratching across the upper, the right and the bottom edge, inherent to the artist's choice of medium. Four very small paint losses to the lower left area. Some surface abrasion to the upper left and right corner edge of the board.
The colour in the catalogue illustration is accurate, however it fails to convey the golden, metallic and reflective finish of the painting.
