We are grateful to Judith Collins for her kind assistance with the cataloguing of the present work.
Unexamined out of frame. The sheet appears to have been adhered with tabs of adhesive tape at each corner. There is extremely minor rounding to the upper and lower left and lower right corners. The sheet undulates very slightly but appears sound. There are one or two tiny nicks to the extreme lower edge. There are one or two areas of extremely fine lines of craquelure to the black pigment in Noah's sleeve. There are one or two accretions to the paint surface. There is possibly some very light rubbing to one or two places to the left and left upper edges. Subject to the above the work appears to be in very good overall condition.
The work is float mounted and held behind perspex in a wooden box frame.
