Condition Report

This work is in very good condition overall. All four edges of the sheet or deckled. Under very close inspection, slight time staining and light soiling is visible in the sheet. Further close inspection reveals scattered media creations which are likely inherent to the artist’s chosen medium and working method. In addition, extremely close inspection reveals a few scattered pinpoint and unobtrusive brown spot accretions throughout. The sheet is very slightly undulated which is likely inherent to the artist’s chosen medium and working method. The sheet is hinged verso at the top two corners. Framed under Plexiglas.
