Executed on cream wove paper, not laid down, hinged to the mount in two places along the upper edge. The left and bottom edges of the work are unevenly cut. There is mounting tape to the reverse of the upper two corners from previous mounting and some tape remnants and paper skimming to the reverse of the left edge. There are several artist's pinholes to the corners and along the extreme edges of the work. There is faint mount staining to the extreme left edge of the sheet not visible when framed. The sheet is slightly time stained and gently undulating. There are a few very minor flattened creases in the lower left corner. There are a few spots of foxing and a small surface studio accretion to the middle of the right edge. This work is in overall good condition.
