Executed on tracing paper, not laid down, wrapped and taped around a board along all four edges. There is an horizontal crease running across the centre of the work, a repaired 3cm long tear to the upper part of the extreme left edge and a tiny paper loss to the lower left corner. The sheet is slightly undulated towards the corners due to the way the sheet is taped to the board and there is an associated diagonal tear to the upper left corner. The sheet is slightly time-stained and there is some scattered foxing in places. Otherwise this work is in overall fairly good condition.
Colours: Fairly accurate, altought slightly warmer in the original when compared to the catalogue illustration.
