Lot Condition Report:
I have read this Important Notice and agree to its terms.
To the unaided eye, the piece appears to be in very good condition. Closer inspection under ultraviolet light reveals a normal fluorescence of artist's pigments, and no signs of restoration. There is thicker, yellowed varnish in the lower right quadrant that shows both under visible light and ultraviolet light. There is one tiny spot, approximately 1/16 inch, of missing pigment in the upper right quadrant, near the lightning bolts. The piece is intentionally unframed.
