Please note that due to the delicate nature of the pastel medium, this work has not been examined out of its frame and the measurements provided are sight size.
The sheet does not appear to be laid down, with the signs of minor buckling evidence of this. There appears to be some very slight abrasions to the left side of the sitters neck.
