The work is in excellent condition. The colours are very strong. There are a small number of foxmarks in the sheet, but these are extremely minor. There is a small, very thin, line of pigment loss on one of the leaves to the right, but this is very minor indeed. The work is laid down to an acid-free mount. In general the sheet is in exceptionally good condition.
