The composition is made up of a sheet that has been laid down by the Artist on cardboard with tape around the edges. The edges of the card are unevenly cut and the sheet is very slightly cockled in places. The adhesive tape has lifted from the sheet in a few places at the left and right vertical edges of the sheet. There are two very small dents to the centre of the upper edge. The corners of the board are very slightly rounded. There are traces of studio matter to the sheet. Subject to the above the work is in excellent overall condition.
