The work appears to be in very good overall condition, with strong passages of colour. The sheet is very slightly cockled as a result of the application of pigment in places. There are a few pale handling marks and smudges in places, in keeping with Artist's working method. There are a few pale fox marks and minor soft handling creases elsewhere in places, most only visible in a raking light and artist's pinholes in each corner. The work is presented in a white perspex box frame.
