This drawing has been reviewed by the John Singer Sargent Catalogue Raisonné Committee and accepted as a genuine work by the artist.
The sheet is very lightly toned with staining along the extreme outer edges. There appears to be one artist's pinhole along the extreme edge at upper center and few very minor losses to the sheet along the outer edges. The work is hinged to its support in two places along the upper reverse edge. The sheet appears to retain a few pin dots of foxing.
