This print is in generally very good to excellent condition. Upon close examination in high raking light, scattered deposits of original retouching are visible overall. There are 2 small soft creases (in the lower center of the image and in the lower left margin), which are only visible in raking light. The impression from the photographer's signature on the reverse is faintly visible in the lower center of the image, near the sitter's legs.
