Executed on buff coloured wove paper, and not laid down, the sheet is secured to the backing board with a number of adhesive strips. Inspection under UV light reveals a small number of sensitively executed areas of retouching, to the lower third of the left edge, and around the left edge of the floating shape. There are one or two smaller spots elsewhere. The edges of the sheet are slightly uneven and there are small nicks and losses to a number of places, including to all four corners and along the vertical edges. There is a small tear (approx. 3cm. long) at the lower edge in the lower right corner. The lower left edge is slightly creased, and there are further creases elsewhere. There are some small scuffs and scratches to the surface. The sheet is slightly stained. There is some frame abrasion. There is some light surface dirt. The work is in overall fair condition.
