This work is in overall good condition. Executed on thick fibrous buff paper, not laid down. The sheet is affixed to the mount along the perimeter of the verso and is gently undulating. There are extensive media and water stains to the lower part of the composition which are possibly inherent to the artist's application of medium. There are minor nicks and small tears along the edges with some minor losses to the paper in places, notably along the lower edge and not visible when framed. There is a further nick to the surface of the sheet towards the upper left corner and a flattened crease running horizontally across the composition in the lower half which has an associated fine tear towards the right edge. The sheet is lightly time-stained and there is a faint old mount stain visible along the extreme left edge.
