This work is in good condition overall. There are tonal and textural shifts due to the artist's chosen media and working method. There is stray media in the lower half of the top sheet. There is discoloration to the overall sheet, most notably near the edges and corners, potentially from adhesive and not visible when framed. There is a faint crease in the lower half of the composition, potentially inherent to the artists working method. There are a few areas of adhesive residue in the upper left quadrant. There is minor foxing at the edge of the sheet on the lower edge, not visible when framed. Framed under Plexiglas.
