Condition Report

This vibrant dye-transfer print is in generally excellent condition. The colors remain bright and saturated, with no apparent fading. Upon close examination, the following are visible: a sharp crease near the lower left edge which does not appear to break the emulsion, and deposits of original retouching. The print is faintly rippled, primarily in the upper and lower margins.


There are a few linen tape hinge remnants on the reverse along the edges. The following is written in an unidentified hand in pencil on the reverse: '(109)' and 'RMG#Eg9403.015-C.'
