The sheet is hinged to the mount at intervals along sheet edges verso. The sheet edges are deckled.
There are some areas of fine craquelure to the dark red pigment with a few instances of minor loss, in particular in the dark red at upper right, with a few further instances of craquelure and air bubbles elsewhere. There is a small area of retouching to the dark red pigment below the centre of the upper edge. There may be one or two further instances of skilful retouching elsewhere, including in the upper centre of the blue background. There are a few minor nicks and creases at extreme sheet edges and at corners with occasional associated extremely fine lines of craquelure to the pigment and one or two minute specks of loss. There are a few slight scuff marks to the work, only visible in a raking light. There is some minor surface dirt, matter and studio detritus to the work in places. This excepting, the work appears to be in very good overall condition with strong vivid colours throughout.
