Condition

Executed on black wove paper and not laid down. There are a number of creases and small tears to the collage elements which are inherent to the artist's choice of materials and technique, all of which are secure except for two areas where the collage elements appear to be lifting slightly, notably in the hat of the figure and along the arms. There is small loss towards the sheet in the upper left corner, this has been patched from the back and is possibly inherent to the artist's process. This work is in overall good condition.
