Executed on cream wove paper, not laid down, attached to the mount in two places along the upper edge and floating in the over-mount. The left and right edges are very slightly uneven and there is an artist pinhole to each of the four corners. The sheet is slightly time-stained and there are a few spots of foxing in places. There are a few minor creases in places, the most prominent of which is a vertical one to the lower part of the extreme left edge and a horizontal one to the upper right corner. There is some tape remnants from previous mounting to the verso. There is a small nick to the centre of the upper edge. This work is in overall good condition.
