The color is bold and bright, and the surface appears to be stable. Along the right and left margins, there are light brown spots; however, they are original to the paper. In the upper left corner, there are light creases that do not affect the center image. Very light wear along the upper margin which appears to be original to the artistic practice. Along the verso, there is a light crease to the lower left corner; to the center of the lower margin of the verso, there is a 1/4 in long adhesive tape residue that does not affect the recto, possibly from the old framer's tape.
