This work is in very good condition. The paper is glued to the backing support by the four corners. The borders of the paper are irregular due to the choice of cut used by the artist. Close inspection reveals a couple of pin-pointed traces of foxing on the left and right borders.

(L'opera è in condizioni conservative molto buone. La carta è incollata al supporto a retro dei quattro angoli. L'irregolarità dei lati della carta è inerente alla scelta di taglio dell’artista. Un'ispezione ravvicinata rivela un paio di puntiformi bruniture sul lato sinistro e destro.)
