Two areas of unstable craquelure on the oil can and on the white element on the table top. Three tiny spots of paint loss along the lower left edge. Blacklight: A quarter-sized spot fluoresces along the upper right edge and a quarter-sized spot fluoresces in the white pigment on the figure's shoulder but these appear to be in the hand of the artist. No evidence of restoration under blacklight.
