This work is in good condition overall. Light handling marks and abrasions are evident along the edges, with minor paint loss also inspected on the top left corner. Close inspection reveals light fibrous accretion to the impasto especially in the upper center; a gentle circular accretion to the lower right edge. A vertical strip of pinpoint dotted abrasions is noted in the lower right quadrant. Examination under UV light shows no sign of restoration.
