The sheet is rippling ever so slightly. There are pinholes in each of the corners. There is a nick to the bottom of the right edge with some minor paper loss and a tear in the lower left corner and to the top edge to the left of the signature. Minor creasing is visible in places, some with associated paint loss, notably to the edges. There are a few scattered losses to the paint layer, notably to the dark blue paint below the fish's belly, in the lower left quadrant, the upper left corner and the center of the top edge. There is the odd light scratch to the surface. The sheet is attached to a sheet of foamcore along the top edge. Held in a black painted frame behind glass.
