There are no rips or restorations when inspected under UV light. There is an area along the lower left quadrant with some brittleness to the surface which has caused some flaking and small losses to the paint layer. There are several impressions to the canvas, likely from something pressing against the verso, that has caused 'bumps' in the surface of the canvas - mostly along the right half of the work. Along the verso these impressions are also visible. Along the verso there are horizontal lines or creases running along the lower half of the work that does not seem to affect the verso. Wear to the frame.
