Taped around the edges with a few scattered small losses, concealed when framed. Pigment separation in the darker pigments in the upper left quadrant. A few cracks in thicker pigments - mostly in the clown's right arm and in the woman's face. A few small paint flakes also on the clown's right arm. Difficult to detect restoration under UV. Somewhat uneven varnish.
