Gouache on paper mounted on masonite. The surface is a bit dirty in line with age. There are areas of the paper that have creased, particularly in the upper left corner and areas in the center and above the Hermitage building. In general fine condition, but those creases could benefit from being examined by a restorer. Held under glass and in a frame.
