Condition

The medium is watercolor over pencil on paper. The work is in very good overall condition. The sheet is mounted to the mat backing at several points along the top and bottom edge, verso. The sheet edges are visible in the current matting. The sheet is undulating faintly due to the waterbased medium. There is an extremely minor nick in the extreme upper left corner. The work presents very well.
