This work is in very good condition overall. There are artist pinholes in the upper corners. There is a soft unduation to the sheet, inherent to the artist’s chosen medium. There is evidence of wear and handling along the edges of the sheet, with fingerprint marks visible along the left and right edges, likely inherent to the time of execution. Upon close inspection, there is a small area of skinning along the lower edge in the margin below the painted area as well as an isolated spot of faint discoloration at the center right edge. Upon further close inspection and under raking light, there is evidence of faint scuff marks most visible in the black painted areas. The sheet hinged verso to the window mat intermittently along the edges. Framed under Plexiglas.


Framed dimensions: 28 by 36 in. (71.1 by 91.4 cm.)
