Claude Picasso has confirmed the authenticity of this work.

Executed on cream wove paper, not laid down, hinged to the mount in two places along the upper edge and floating in the overmount. The sheet is unevenly time-stained, most prominently to the left part of the upper edge (where it appears to have been covered by a slightly acidic sheet in the past). There is a diagonal crease across the upper left corner and a few tiny accretions in places. This work is in overall good condition.
