Executed on cream laid paper, which has been joined to a second sheet of cream laid paper and a piece of buff-colored wove paper with glue. All four edges of both cream sheets are very lightly deckled and the buff colored sheet is irregularly cut. The sheet has been hinged to a mount at the upper left and upper right corners of its verso. '1058/49' and 'z 29 uo109' written by another hand on the verso. A faint mat stain is present at the top and bottom edges. Some minor accretions in the lower register inherent to the gluing process. A few additional scattered stains and minor studio transference. A few minor nicks to the left edge of the cream sheet and the left edge of the buff colored paper. Minor creases in the lower left and lower right corners. This work is in good condition.
