Please note that this work has not been examined outside of its frame. The paper does not appear to be fully laid down and the darker, more fibrous paper appears to be fixed at its corners and is undulating slightly, as is consistent with the nature of this material. There is light fraying to the top and bottom ropes, as is consistent with the nature of this material. There are light surface marks to the centre of the right hand framing edge measuring approximately 2mm. There is an area of paper loss to the top right hand corner of the fibrous paper, however this seems to be contemporary with the creation of the work. Otherwise, the work appears to be in very good original condition. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
