Unexamined out of frame. The sheet undulates slightly but appears sound. The collage elements all appear adhered and intact, though a couple are lifting very slightly in the lower left quadrant, in line with the Artist's materials. There appear to be one or two handling marks at the extreme edges and some very small accretions and instances of studio matter in places. There are one or two very minor flecks of foxing and the sheet appears very slightly stained at the edges. This excepting, the work appears in very good overall condition.
The work is housed in a painted wooden frame.
