Additional Notes & Condition Report

The artist has lightly abraded the paint surface of the backgroud wall in the composition. Also in this area there is a few streaks of dripping. The area does not flouresce under UV light as would a foreign substance on the surface of the paint, and it is assumed this is an intentional effect by the artist's hand.
