The work of art is in very good condition. Signed "Claude Buck" on verso. In a gold painted decorative frame. Artist has applied a reddish ground which shows through the top layers of paint and plays an important role in this composition. Cracks and scratches in the pigment appear to be intentional and original to the work, allowing the reddish ground to peer through. Pigment and support are stable. No losses are evident. Painting does not fluoresce under blacklight.
