The board appears sound. There is some very minor rounding to the extreme edges of the collage elements but otherwise these appear securely adhered. There are fine lines of cracking to the work in line with the grain of the board. There are a few minute spots of staining to the work, some associated with the adhesive used for the collage. The collage elements are slightly discoloured, with some instances of slight creasing to the edges. There is some light surface dirt, studio detritus and matter in places.
Inspection under Ultraviolet light reveals no obvious signs of fluorescence or retouching.
The work is presented in a simple wooden frame.
