Unexamined out of frame. The work appears to be adhered to the backing board at the corners and is not fully laid down. The sheet undulates in places, in keeping with the Artist's materials. There are one or two tiny nicks to the extreme left edge, only visible upon very close inspection. There may be some possible staining at the extreme edges in line with a previous mount, and there is some minor time staining and light surface dirt in places to the sheet. This excepting, the work appears in excellent overall condition.
