This work is in excellent condition. Executed on cream wove paper. The sheet has been t-hinged at two places along the top edge of its verso. The pigments are bright and well preserved. The left edge is cut. There are a few extremely minor spots of staining. There are four two inch areas of staining to the verso of the sheet, likely due to a previous mounting.
