Both sheets have discoloured and there is mount staining. The edges of both sheets are slightly uneven. Small tears are visible to the left of the top edge of the Man with a Flute and to the top right edge of the Man with a Violin. These have been repaired. Fine craquelure with minor associated paint loss is visible to the thicker areas of white paint, most notably to the sleeves of both figures. Foxing is scattered throughout. Both sheets are hinged to the mount in two places at the top edge. Framed and held behind plexiglass.
