The sheet has been attached to the mount with adhesive tape at each of the upper corners. The current mount covers approximately 2in. of the upper part of the work. The sheet undulates very slightly in places. The extreme lower right corner is very slightly rounded and there is a very faint diagonal crease to the lower left corner. There are faint handling marks visible to the upper and right edges. There is very slight time staining to the sheet, in line with the mount, only visible under very close inspection. There are one or two instances of studio matter and some light surface dirt. Subject to the above, the work appears in very good overall condition.
The work is window mounted and held behind glass in a stained wooden box frame.
