Condition

The colors are bold and bright and the surface is stable. There is one extremely minute pinhole along the extreme upper center edge, nearly obscured by the rabbet. There are a few light accretions along the upper extreme edge, seemingly from the rabbet rubbing against the surface of the painting. Clean verso. Light wear to the frame.
