The work is folded, with the composition continuing on the fold with a man seated next to Audrey, currently hidden from view. The sheet is attached to the mount with adhesive tabs towards the left corners. There is very minor rounding to the left edge. The lower edge is very slightly rough, possibly in keeping with the nature of the paper. The sheet undulates slightly. There are extremely faint handling marks towards the upper and lower edges, only visible upon close inspection. There is light dirt and specks of studio detritus and surface matter. There is some possible minor fading to the brown pigments at the bottom. Subject to the above, the work appears to be in very good overall condition with passages of bright, vivid colours.
The work is floated and presented in a simple wooden frame under glass.
