The sheet is attached to a foam board with adhesive tabs to the corners and to the centre of the edges. The board is in turn affixed to the backing board. The edges of the sheet are deckled, in keeping with the nature of the paper. There is minor rounding to the corners of the sheet. There are small nicks to the lower edge, and some rounding to this edge. The sheet is cockled, in keeping with the Artist's materials. There are two or three very minor instances of very tiny fine lines of craquelure to some of the thicker areas of gouache, including to the yellow form to the lower left corner, and in the brown paint towards the left edge, only visible upon extremely close inspection. There are a couple of very faint scuffs towards the centre of the sheet. There is some possible blooming to the brown pigment in the lower right quadrant. There is light dust and a few specks of studio detritus and surface matter to the work. This excepting, the work appears in very good overall condition, with fresh, vivid passages of colour.
