The canvas has been lined. Scuffs and abrasions to the extreme edges. There is a horizontal area of scuffing running along the upper edge - probably from a previous frame. Craquelure throughout, most noticeably to the dark areas possibly due to inclusion of bitumen. These areas also a little lighter in some places, possibly due to a reaction with the varnish. Some light surface scratching throughout. Inspection under UV reveals in-filling to the craquelure and some retouching throughout.
