These works are in overall very good to excellent condition. All four works, hinge mounted along sheet's upper edges onto cardboard, margin edges are very slightly soiled, slight undulation which is inherent to the process. On two of the prints there are some very minimal creases in the margin away from the image. The red cloth portfolio box is missing. Framed under museum glass.
