Executed on wove paper laid down on canvas. There are artist's pinholes at all four corners and along the edges of the sheet. There is a 9cm repaired tear in the upper centre probably related to a crease in the centre of the composition and a few further small nicks and tears to the edges of the sheet. There is further creasing throughout the sheet due to the medium used by the artist and a few minor scattered paint losses and abrasions. The margins of the work appear time-stained and the medium is slightly fainted. This work is in stable condition.
