Laid down on a sheet of paper and subsequently hinge mounted to a modern card backing. There is a small repaired tear to the lower right corner and two very small old tears to the upper right edge. There is evidence of some very minor surface dirt to the sheet and a small pink stain to the upper left quarter. The drawing remains in otherwise very good condition throughout, with the penwork strong and the ink fresh and vibrant. Sold unframed.
