This work is in very good condition overall. The stretcher bars are slightly uneven against the wall, as evident from a side view. The ash elements appear to be firmly affixed to the surface. The surface texture is inherent to the artist's working method and choice of medium. Scattered dust and fiber accretions are visible throughout the surface. There are media accretions along the overturn edges, inherent to the work and from the time of execution. Unframed.
