The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by Marina Ferretti.
Executed on cream wove paper. The sheet has been hinged to a window mat at two places along the upper edge. The right edge is deckled, and the top, left and bottom edges have been unevenly cut. The colors are well-preserved and present nicely. The lower left and lower right edges bear remnants of an adhesive, likely from a previous mounting. There are flattened creases extending across the upper left and lower right corners. The sheet is unevenly light struck. The work is in good condition.
