This work is in good condition. Executed on cream wove paper. The sheet is hinged to the mount in places. The sheet is slightly undulating. There are superficial stains in places and superficial handling marks along the extreme edges and corners, possibly due to handling in the studio. There are four small areas of paper skimming to each corner, due to previous adhesive which has been removed. There is a faint crease running vertically down the middle of the sheet and two very tiny nicks to the centre of the lower edge. There is a minor superficial scratch on the upper left corner. This work has not been examined outside of its frame.
