ADOM has confirmed the authenticity of this work.
Executed on the back of the cover of the April 1973 edition of Derriere le Miroir magazine (the sheet comprises both the front and back cover but the crayon drawing is only executed on one side). Executed on cream wove paper, not laid down, and hinged to the overmount in two places along the upper edge. The sheet is very slightly time-stained and there is some minor mount-staining to parts of the extreme edges. There is a strip of paper adhered to the upper edge, which we would recommend having removed by a restorer. There are a few tiny fly spots and minor foxing in places, and some small horizontal creases to the right edge, most of which are probably inherent to the sheet's status as a folded magazine cover. This work is in overall good condition.
