This work is in very good condition overall. There are artist pinholes in the corners. There is a soft undulation to the sheet, inherent to the artist's working method and chosen medium. Under close inspection, there is minor evidence of hairline paint separation in the more thickly applied passages. The sheet is hinged verso to the mat along the top edge. Framed under Plexiglas.

 

Framed dimensions: 21 ⅝ by 17 ¾ in. (54.9 by 45.1 cm.)
