Examined within its frame, the work is in very good condition overall. The deckled edges are inspected with light discolouration, with a faint foxing mark to the upper right. A faint crayon mark is evident on the center left, most likely inherent to the original execution. Lower center and right center are inspected with very gentle unobtrusive surface creases visible under raking light.
