The sheet is completely laid down onto the card backing. The work is composed of two sheets and the adjoining seam is visible towards the left of the work. There is a slight vertical undulation visible to the left of this seam. The sheet has been cut, thought to be in keeping with the Artist's technique. There are Artist's pinholes in three corners and a fourth presumed underneath the adhesive tape in the upper left corner. None of the pinholes are visible in the present mount. There is surface dirt and studio matter visible throughout. Subject to the above, the work appears to be in very good overall condition.
The work is window mounted in an acidic mount and held within a simple painted wooden frame behind glass.
