Unexamined out of frame. The sheet undulates slightly, in keeping with the medium. The sheet has been secured to the mount at intervals at the edges. There are two prominent horizontal creases at the bottom edge that run the width of the sheet, most likely due to a previous mount, with three further horizontal creases towards the centre. There is some damage to the top edge of the sheet where it has been folded. There are some creasing and small tears to the extreme upper right and lower left corners with a number of further smaller nicks and tears to the extreme edges, with some possible repaired tears. There is some staining to the sheet most visibly along the lower, right, and upper edges and the sheet is slightly time stained.
The work is float mounted and held behind glass in a painted wooden frame.
