This work is in very good condition overall. All four edges of the sheet are deckled and there are artist’s pinholes in all four corners. There is a very slight undulation to the sheet inherent to the artist’s chosen medium. The sheet is lightly time stained. Under very close inspection, a few, scattered semi-translucent light brown pinpoint spot accretions are visible, scattered across the sheet, particularly concentrated along the left edge of the sheet. The sheet is hinged verso intermittently along the edges. Framed under Plexiglas.
