This double-sided work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of wear and handling to the edges, including creases, small tears and losses, consistent with the artist’s working method and the environment in which the work was discovered. All elements appear stable and intact. There are varying degrees of time staining and discoloration to the sheet, most prevalent along the edges, which is typical of works by the artist. The sheet is hinged intermittently along the edges. Framed in a double-sided Plexiglas frame.
