Condition

This work is in very good condition overall. There are artist's pinholes along the edges and at the corners. The colors are bright, fresh and clean. Under very close inspection, there is evidence of handling and wear to the edges including dulling to the corners and a minute and unobtrusive loss to the paper tip at the lower right corner. There is pale time-staining to the sheet which is obscured by the mat. The sheet is hinged verso to the mat intermittently along the edges. Framed under glass.
