The sheet is attached to the mount with an adhesive in each corner. The edges of the sheet are cut with the left and lower edges cut unevenly. There are Artist's pinholes to each corner and one or two further pinholes to the edges of the sheet. There is one faint historic crease towards the centre of the lower edge. The sheet undulates slightly, in keeping with the medium. There is faint rubbing to the sheet in line with the mount and the adhesive substance has resulted in very faint stains to each corner. There are very minor scattered flecks of foxing. There is some light surface dirt and elements of studio matter in places. Subject to the above, the work appears to be in very good overall condition.
