Condition Report

Generally good condition with rich, heavily impastoed surface. Scattered areas of cracking, but surface seems stable in these areas. There is one area in the lower left quadrant of composition where paint is lifting from surface (some small apparent losses). There is a vertical drip of varnish (?) near center of composition, which may or may not be part of the process.
