The sheet is adhered to the mount with a tab of adhesive tape at each upper corner. There are Artist's pinholes at the upper and lower right corners, with associated pinhead marks. The sheet undulates slightly, in keeping with the Artist's working methods. The upper left corner is very slightly creased and there is some further minor creasing in the upper third towards the left edge and to the right of centre. The pigments may have faded slightly over time. There are one or two instances of detritus and surface matter, and light surface dirt in places. This excepting, the work appears in very good overall condition.
The work is float mounted and held behind glass in a stained wooden frame.
