The sheet has been hinged to the mount along the upper edge. There are some signs of abrasion, primarily in the lower left corner (possibly related to the artist's cross-hatching). There are scattered spots of foxing on the mount and mat however these do not appear to be affecting the composition itself. Otherwise this work is in good overall condition.
