Executed on graph paper which has not been laid down. The sheet is attached to another piece of paper along the left edge and at the top right corner. The lower edge is deckled and uneven, the upper, left and right edges have been cut. There is a light wave to the paper. There are artist pinholes in the upper left and lower left corners. There is a very minor loss to the paper in the lower left quadrant of the margin, which is hidden by the mat. There is very light time fading to the paper commensurate with age.
The pigments are extremely fresh and strong. The drawing is in overall very good condition.
