The sheet appears to be fully laid down on to a supportive mount. There are Artist's pinholes in the upper corners. The edges of the sheet have been slightly unevenly cut. The collaged elements are generally well secured to the sheet, however in places they are slightly lifting at their corners. There are some slight tears and creases to these collaged sections; this is particularly evident in the lower right corner of the central panel where the collaged element has lifted and slightly torn. There are some further tiny nicks elsewhere. There is some slight craquelure in the black pigment in the left hand panel, with some very minor associated flecks of loss. The sheet has some slight creases in places, predominantly towards the right edge. There are handling marks across the surface, some slight surface dirt, some studio matter and glue residue. This excepting the work appears to be in good overall condition.
The work is float mounted and held behind glass in a simple wooden frame.
