Executed on cream wove paper, laid down on Japan paper. The sheet is hinged to the overmount on the verso of the upper two corners. The upper edge is slightly irregular and has been unevenly torn, not visible when framed. The sheet is time darkened and there are a few scattered spots of foxing. There is a sinuous repaired tear running diagonally across the lower left quadrant and another smaller repaired tear running horizontally from the upper right edge and a third in the centre of the lower right quadrant. This work is in fair overall condition.
