Laid down at two of the corners. The sheet has been made up at the four corners to create an entire sheet as the actual drawing is fragmented. The chalk remains fairly fresh however there are a number of small tears and nicks in the actual sheet and there appears to be some water damage along the right hand side by the putto's hands. There are a few dark brown stains scattered throughout the sheet.
