The sheet is adhered to the mount along the upper edge. The upper and left edges have been slightly unevenly cut and the lower edge is deckled, none of which are visible in the present mount. The sheet undulates slightly, in keeping with the Artist's working methods and materials. There are two faint vertical creases to the upper half of the sheet. There are three faint vertical scuffs to the upper left quadrant, with one or two possible further instances elsewhere. There are a few small instances of detritus and matter including flecks of paint across the surface, which appears to be in line with the Artist's intention, and some light surface dirt and a small number of possible tiny flecks of foxing. This excepting, the work appears in very good overall condition.
The work is window mounted and held behind glass in a gilt painted wooden frame.
