The authenticity of this work has kindly been confirmed by the Comité Chagall.
Executed on cream wove paper. All four edges have been taped along the verso, likely due to a previous mounting; the tape is in turn taped to a window mat along the top edge. The right edge of the sheet is lightly deckled. A slight undulation to the sheet. Remnants of a previous mount and flecks of gilding along the taped edges. Remnants of an adhesive along the extreme right edge, in addition to a 3/4 inch loss to the bottom of the right edge. Minor handling creases and nicks along the right edge. A few pindot stains. This work is in good condition.
