Condition:

This work is in very good condition. The foam backing is adhered to the backing board and there are artist's pinholes at all four corners and in intermittent places along the sheet edges, which are original. The sheet edges are unevenly cut and the sheet undulates slightly, which is in keeping with the artist's choice of media. Very close inspection reveals a few small drying cracks with minute associated specks of loss in isolated places, to the centre left and right. Further very close inspection reveals a small scuff mark at the upper centre. There are some superficial scuffs in isolated places and a small repaired tear at the upper right, all of which appear to be original. All other surface irregularities are in keeping with the artist's working process and choice of media. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light.
