Condition Report

This print is in generally excellent condition. As is typical of Cartier-Bresson's later prints, upon examination in raking light, scattered deposits of original retouching are visible throughout. The print is slightly rippled along the right margin edge.


'HCB/1090' is written in an unidentified hand in pencil on the reverse.
