Please note the colors and shades in the online catalogue illustration may vary depending on screen settings. Please contact the Photographs department to request additional images of this work: firstname.lastname@example.org. This luminous, highly-detailed print is in generally very good condition. It is overmatted so the edges of the mount cannot be fully examined. This does not affect the print itself in any way. Upon very close inspection in high raking light, the following are visible: scattered shallow hairline scratches, mostly in the dark areas of the print; and a small impression in the lower left quadrant, none of which breaks the emulsion or is immediately apparent. On the reverse of the mount is some minor soiling and a few stray graphite deposits. When examined under ultraviolet light, this photograph does not appear to fluoresce.
