The work is in good condition. Executed on cream wove paper. The pigment is fresh and strong. There are traces of glue and old tape to the reverse of the upper edge. There is mat burn around the periphery of the sheet, varying between 1/8 and 1 in. in width. There is a horizontal tear (approx. 1 1/4 in. long) to the center of the right edge, which doesn't encroach on the ink itself. There is a water stain to the sheet at the center of the lower edge, resulting in some minor undulation to the sheet.
