The work has been painted with a heavy impasto and the surface is thickly built up. In some areas, this impasto presents in such a way that the paint surface looks to have ridges, but this appears to be the working method of the artist. In some of the darkest painted areas there is a thin, pale grey powdery substance on the surface. Generally in very good, original condition.
