This work is in very good condition overall. The top, left and right edges of the sheet are deckled. There are soft creases at each corner in addition to very minor evidence of handling and wear to the extreme edges. There is a slight undulation to the sheet inherent to the artist's chosen medium and working method. The sheet is hinged verso to the mat intermittently along the edges. Framed under Plexiglas.
