This work is in very good condition overall. The sheet is hinged at the upper corners of the reverse to the backing board. There is adhesive tape at the upper corners as well as adhesive residue just below the upper right corner and in the upper left quadrant, all inherent to the artist's working method and present at the moment of execution. There is evidence of faint handling wear to the sheet including scattered soft creases, most notably along the upper edge and in the lower left corner, most visible under raking light and upon close inspection. Framed under Plexiglas.
Framed dimensions: 19⅞ by 23½ in. (50.5 by 59.7 cm.)
