Condition

Executed on cream laid paper, not laid down and taped to the overmount at all four corners. The right and upper edges are deckled. There is some scattered foxing, most prominently in the upper right corner. There are some creases in places, most extensively along the lower edge, some of which may be inherent to the paper. There are two pin-sized holes to the centre of the right edge and one to the upper left corner. There are a few small nicks to the upper edge and three small paper losses to the lower edge, none of which are visible when framed. There is a line of tape running along the upper edge of the verso from previous mounting. Otherwise, this work is in overall fairly good condition.
