Condition Report

This work is in very good condition overall. The sheet is hinged at the corners of the reverse to the backing board. There is a slight undulation to the sheet due to the artist's chosen media. There are scattered soft creases, most notably at the left breast, visible under raking light and upon close inspection. There are scattered ink marks, likely due to the artist's working method. There is minor wear with associated scattered lifting to the paper collage, likely inherent to the artist's chosen media. Framed under Plexiglas.
