Executed on cream wove paper, not laid down and affixed to the mount at several points along the extreme edges. The edges are unevenly cut. There are vertical areas of paper abrasion along the right and left edges, possibly related to previous mounting. There are creases at all four corners. There is a repaired paper loss at the tip of the upper right corner. There are some minor tears along the edges (the longest of which is approx. 0.25 cm long). There is a humidity mark at the centre of the upper edge. There are some tiny spots of foxing and white accretions in places, possibly related to mould, most predominately to the upper part of the composition. This work is in good condition.
