Some discolouration to both sheets, most probably as a result of exposure to light. There is a tear to the left edge of the sheet portraying figures on a riverbank, though this only affects the border and not the drawing itself. The black chalk medium remains fresh and vibrant throughout both works. Both drawings are sold in giltwood frames.
Quelques décolorations sur les deux feuilles probablement dues au soleil. Une petite déchirure sur le bord droit de la feuille montrant des personnages sur une berge de fleuve bien que celle ci n'affecte que le bord et pas le dessin lui-même. Le crayon reste frais et vibrant dans l'ensemble sur les deux dessins. Vendus tous deux dans des cadres dorés.
