This work is in good condition overall. There is evidence of wear and handling to the edges, including some previous mat staining along the extreme edges and the upper right corner has been irregularly cut. The sheet has discolored slightly with age. There is a slight undulation to the sheet, inherent to the artist’s working method. Under very close inspection, there is a small brown spot accretion visible along the bottom left edge. The sheet is hinged verso to the mat intermittently along the edges. Framed under Plexiglas.
