Executed on paper which has been laid down to card. The medium covers the entire surface of the sheet. The pigments are extremely fresh, strong and well preserved. There are a number of minor scuffs and scratches to the medium, most highly visible in the black background pigment of the work, but none of them are particularly intrusive and they don't detract from the overall look of the work. Some of the aforementioned marks may be studio marks. The work is in largely very good condition.
