chromogenic print, signed, titled, and dated in ink on the reverse, 1974
7¾ by 9¾ in. (19.7 by 24.8 cm.)
This early chromogenic print is in generally excellent condition. The colors remain vibrant and saturated with no apparent fading. A few scattered small scratches that do not appear to break the emulsion are visible only in raking light. There is a 1/2-inch scratch at the upper center edge near the blue and white sign. These minor issues do not detract from the overall fine quality of this print.
