The sheet is affixed to the mount with tabs of adhesive tape at each upper corner. The sheet undulates slightly in places, in keeping with the Artist's working methods and materials. There are Artist's pinholes at each upper corner with associated pinhead marks. There is one tiny nick to the edge of the sheet at the lower left corner. There are remnants of an old adhesive at the centre of the extreme upper edge and in the lower right corner. There is one very faint crease towards the lower left edge, only visible upon very close inspection. There is staining to the sheet in line with a previous mount and time staining to the sheet, with a further area of staining to the centre of the lower edge. There are one or two instances of matter and light surface dirt in places. This excepting, the work appears in very good overall condition.
