We wish to thank Professor Luis Martín Lozano for his kind assistance in the cataloguing of this work. 

This work is in good condition overall. The sheet has been hinged to the mat on the verso in each extreme corner. The colors are vibrant, and the media layer is stable. Two artist pinholes are present in the extreme upper right corner. A minor pinpoint loss to the sheet is present in the extreme upper left corner, which may correspond to an artist pinhole. Very faint diagonal creases are present in the extreme upper right and lower left corners, which may be inherent. The work is ready to hang. Framed under museum glass.
