The work is in very good condition. There is very gentle wear and light creases along the edges and corners. There are occasional spots of faint foxing mark throughout. Close examination reveals faint water stain on the upper left quadrant (17 cm each from top and left) and another to the top edge near the corner, most likely inherent to the original execution. Please note the work was only examined within its frame.
