Condition Report

The sheet has discoloured in line with age. There are pinholes in both top corners and in the middle of the bottom edge. A fine pattern of craquelure is visible throughout the composition. There is an isolated area of minor paint flaking to the square base at the bottom of the composition. There are a few very faint diagonal scratches to the grey triangles. The green pigment of the triangle on the right has discoloured unevenly. There is a light layer of surface dirt with spots of dirt in places. Some very minor incipient foxing is visible in places. The sheet has been hinged to the mount in two places along the top edge. Held in a simple black wooden frame behind glass. Unexamined out of frame.
