The artist's sheet has been hinged to the window mat along its upper edge, on the reverse. There is a circa 2cm. tear in the upper left corner, however only visible upon close inspection. The sheet is somewhat undulated, with a few creases visible. Two pin-head sized holes and a few, minor, spots of paint loss are visible in the lower right quadrant of the composition. There are remnants of some black tissue along the edges on the reverse. Colours are strong and vivid.
Overall, this work appears to be in good condition and is ready to hang.
