The sheet appears sound. The edges of the sheet are evenly cut. The sheet has been fully laid down onto Japan paper which then is hinged to the mount in three places along the upper edge. The sheet undulates slightly. There are a few small isolated areas of flaking, with a few associated areas of loss. There are some very faint scuffs to the upper section of the work, most probably in line with the Artist's working method. There are some inconsistencies to the surface of the work due to the Artist's chosen media. There are one or two tiny specks of foxing. There is some slight time staining to the sheet. The work is window mounted and presented in a stained wooden frame, held under glass.
