Please note the colours and shades in the online catalogue illustration may vary depending on screen settings.
This print, on matte-surfaced paper, is in generally very good to excellent condition. It is almost trimmed to the image with very narrow left and right margins. The signature, title and date in gold ink in the margin are slightly smudged. When examined closely in raking light the following are visible: a one-inch scratch near the upper right corner; and gentle rippling along the left edge. The edges are slightly worn and the corners are bumped.
The reverse is attached to the mat with two hinges along the upper edge. 'Christine Photographed by Lewis Morley 1963' is written in pencil, possibly in the photographer's hand, on the reverse.
