signed

watercolor, fabric and paper collage, mounted to board

This work is in good condition overall. All elements are present and stable. There are tonal and textural shifts due to the artist's working method and chosen media. There are artist pinholes in the top left and top right corners as well as along the upper edge. There is scattered stray media, most notably in the upper left quadrant.


There is discoloration to the overall sheet, consistent with the age of the work. There is discoloration along the edge of the sheet, potentially from adhesive and visible upon close inspection. The sheet is buckling in areas around the face, potentially inherent to the artist's chosen media. The fabric is lifting in some areas, potentially inherent to the artist's working method. Framed under glass.
