The sheet is secured to the mount with two adhesive tabs in the upper corners. The sheet has been slightly unevenly cut at the upper and right edge. The sheet undulates slightly in keeping with the artist's technique and medium but otherwise appears sound. There is a very small nick to the paper in the upper left corner. There is one area of rubbing above the lower right hand shape. There are one or two very minor instances of studio matter. Subject to the above the work appears to be in excellent overall condition with strong passages of medium and fresh colour throughout.
The work is float mounted and held behind glass in a simple wooden frame.
