The sheet is sound and is undulating and slightly wrinkled across the surface. The sheet has apparently been adhered to the backing in places along the edges.
There is a tiny abrasion to the sheet two inches above the centre of the lower edge and three tiny specks of staining and a few media marks in the lower right quadrant. Otherwise the work is in good original condition.
Held under glass in a gilt plaster frame with a cream mount; unexamined out of frame.
