The sheet is hinged to the mount with two adhesive tabs along the top edge. The sheet is slightly time stained, most visibly in line with an old mount. The edges have been unevenly cut and the left and bottom edges are folded over. There is a very small loss in the top right corner. There is some abrasion to the paper in the upper right corner. Most of the stamp on the left side of the top edge has been lost. The top half of the stamp in the centre of the top edge has been lost. On the top edge of the verso, there is residue from masking tape of a previous mounting. There is light surface dirt and studio matter in places. This excepting the work appears to be in very good overall condition.
The work is window mounted and held behind glass in a simple wooden frame.
