This work is in good condition overall, taking its age into account. The sheet has yellowed slightly throughout. Artist pinholes are present in each of the extreme corners of the sheet. The lower left edge of the sheet presents slight deckling which may be inherent to the sheet. Three tears to the sheet are present: two vertical at the extreme upper right edge, measuring one and one-half inches in length respectively, and one diagonal at the upper left corner measuring 1/2 inch in length. Each of these tears has been repaired and is stable.
