The sheet is hinged to the mount at each corner verso. The right sheet edge has been trimmed slightly unevenly, in keeping with the Artist's intentions, not visible in the present mount. There is a very slight undulation to the sheet, probably due to current hinging. There is some very light surface soiling to the sheet in places. This excepting, the work appears to be in excellent overall condition.

The work is window mounted and presented in a painted wooden frame, held under glass.

Please telephone the department on +44 (0) 207 293 6424 if you have any questions regarding the present work.
