Locks Gallery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

With an approx. 2 inch crescent shaped soft scuff at the bottom center. With a few tiny specks of white showing through the orange paint at the upper left corner - possibly wear or possibly original as the paint is thinner in this area. With a tiny black fleck at the upper right vertical edge. An approx. 1/4 inch area of apparent loss to the top layer of paint at the extreme upper center edge. However, there is still orange paint in this area, it is just slightly lighter than the surrounding area and this is not very obtrusive. The band of yellow paint at the bottom portion of the work has an occasionally slightly mottled appearance. Overall in very good original condition.
