Executed on cream wove paper, hinged to the mount in two places on the upper edge of the verso. There is adhesive residue and paper skinning to the extreme edges of the sheet (likely due to a historic mounting method), in the margin and not affecting the face of the work. The sheet is time-stained. There is minor craquelure in the thickest pigment (the circular red areas at the centre of the composition) (measuring approx. 0.5 cm in length). There are two tiny losses (each approx. 0.2cm in length) in the lower right quadrant and some light surface scratching in occasional places throughout, most noticeable in the black border. This work is in overall good condition.
