This work is in good condition overall. There are minor marks of handling and wear around the edges, along with associated nicks and minor chips, such as the ones on the upper left corner, middle left edge as well as middle right. A hairline crack 7.5 cm in length is apparent on the reverse (specifically on the upper register, located approximately 11.5 cm from the top and 27 cm from the right), but it is not discernible from the front. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals no indication of retouching. Unframed.
